Heather Landi reports for Fierce Healthcare on Apr 15, 2019:
About 1 in 5 physicians currently use telehealth to care for patients-up from about 5% in 2015-and that figure is expected to soar within the next few years, a new survey from telehealth company American Well  found. By 2022, more than half of physicians (61%) who are not currently using telehealth indicated they are either very likely or likely to start using telehealth representing half a million doctors, according to the survey, which polled 800 physicians. The survey revealed a correlation between physicians' interest in using telehealth and physician burnout. Specialists which are among the most burnt out according to an Advisory Board Company survey, including urologists, emergency medicine physicians, infectious disease specialists, and pediatricians, are also the top specialties willing to practice via telehealth, according to the American Well survey.

Thinking about selling a medical practice? Here are 5 steps for preparing your business in advance of a transaction.
  1. Visit your financial planner.
Be sure that you can afford to leave the business, if you are retiring. Most times, buyers will require a comprehensive non-compete and you should be absolutely certain that you are financially prepared to retire or sell before you sign that restrictive covenant.
  1. Visit your accountant.
Get your financial history in order. Review and re-review your tax returns and profit statements for the past three years to ensure that the business is appropriately reflected in those records. Take the time to clean up any "creative" bookkeeping so that the buyer is given a complete and accurate picture of the business they are buying into. You are likely going to have to make a representation that your financial disclosures are true, so take the time to get comfortable with that representation early on.
