This week the AMA published an article with some interesting stats related to telehealth use across the US.
Here are some highlights:
- 21% of all telehealth claims were made by clients age 31-40 during the time period 2014-2018.
- In that same time period, 65% of all claims were made by female clients.
- Psychiatrists in rural areas were more likely to provide telehealth services, with 24.2% of psychiatrists in North Dakota offering telehealth, as opposed to only .01% in Massachusetts.
