Their success with medical teleconsultations, that is to say consulting a doctor remotely without traveling, continues. Damien Mascret, doctor and journalist France TV, examines this success on set. “In February 2020, we were at 40,000 teleconsultations per month, two months later, in full confinement, we went to 4.5 million teleconsultations in April “. Today, around 160,000 remote consultations are performed each week.
Damien Mascret notes a result “encouraging for the future because the doctors have taken up teleconsultation “. In 2019, they were around 2,000 to offer. In 2020, there are more than 60,000, although they insist that nothing can replace a real consultation. If teleconsultations have finally taken off in France, it is because the Health Insurance has relaxed the reimbursement conditions. Negotiations will take place Thursday, September 17 between doctors and Health Insurance.
