The telemedicine market isn't only effecting physicians and other healthcare professionals. Telemedicine has potentially great benefits for patients too. For example, regular office visit expenses will reduce and patients who have a difficult time traveling to appointments, don't have to worry about it anymore.

As the telemedicine market is expected to reach $34 billion by 2020, its impact in the healthcare industry is endless. Telemedicine refers to the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance. From reduced transportation expenses to increased cost efficiency, healthcare organizations are constantly searching for more ways to provide quality care and communication between providers and their patients.

However, do people ultimately trust telemedicine?

TechnologyAdvice recently conducted a nationwide survey of 504 U.S. adults to investigate the way people feel about telemedicine and its services. The infographic below highlights their findings.
