Telehealth Takes off with Millennials

Millennials are turning out to be the biggest proponents of telehealth services and mobile health applications. Telehealth services use technology such as computers and smartphone apps to connect physicians and healthcare providers with patients for diagnosis, referrals and treatment.

 

At nearly 80 million strong and growing in numbers, millennials are the largest generation living and working in the United States. Born between 1981 and 1997, they are generally more tech-savvy than baby boomers. Millennials want easy access, lower cost and convenient healthcare services that fit their busy lifestyles.

More than 50% of millennials are parents with young families.[3] Healthcare providers are recruiting millennials for telehealth pediatric care that can be conducted from the comfort of the family’s home. Services offered include emergency diagnosis, referrals, periodic check-ups and ongoing parental education.
