Telemedicine is becoming a mainstay in the healthcare delivery system, according to a new infographic by Accenture. While in its early stages, telemedicine is expected to grow rapidly and could provide alternatives for some physician office visits and urgent care and ER visits.

Accenture released an infographic on the topic that looks at the potential of telemedicine, the role of employers in telemedicine adoption and where telemedicine fits into the telehealth spectrum.
