Many mothers find it challenging to seek medical care for themselves or take a sick child to the doctor’s office during the school year. In fact, according to a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia survey, seven out every 10 moms spends more than two hours for each doctor visit.
One hundred percent of moms surveyed want 24-hour access to doctors and other healthcare offerings, while 80 percent want to learn more about telehealth to help deal with a non-emergency medical issue.
Telehealth provides consumers a more convenient alternative to in-person visits with direct access to quality medical care from any mobile device or computer. Healthcare-on-demand is important: 65 percent of moms said it’s more important than streaming video or food delivery, and 61 percent said health technology innovations would help their children live healthier lives.
