Quantified benefits of telemedicine
James Marcin, our pediatric telemedicine director and chief of pediatric critical care medicine, recently published a landmark study demonstrating the enormous environmental benefits of telemedicine.
Marcin found that over 18 years, our telemedicine patients avoided:
- More than 5 million miles of travel
- Nine years of travel time
- $3 million in related costs
- The release of nearly 2,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, in addition to other pollution savings
