Telemedicine is gaining traction in physician practices. But it’s more popular among doctors in certain specialties, a new study has found. Who’s jumping on board? Radiologists were the most likely, as they reported using telemedicine to store and forward data about diagnoses (39.5%), according to a new study by researchers at the American Medical Association (AMA) published in the December issue of Health Affairs. That was followed by psychiatrists (27.8%) and cardiologists (24.1%). Allergists and immunologists (6.1%) and gastroenterologists (7.9%) were least likely to use it.
