Telehealth is booming, but who are the power users?

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.
