Unlike expensive hospital systems, telehealth applications are low-cost to implement. But the cost of a telehealth visit is much less than traditional on-site visits. Typically, the average cost of an emergency room visit is $1,734 and the average cost of an on-site doctor’s office visit is $146. Conversely, a telehealth visit is only $79 on average. The University of Pittsburg Medical Center (UPMc) says they save $86.64 every time an online visit replaces an on-site visit.
