9 telemedicine startups making big hires

One of the biggest trends emerging in health care is telemedicine, defined as “two-way, real-time interactive communication between a patient and health care provider at a distant site,” by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The future of health care is happening remotely by way of speakers, video and even elaborate holograms. Already, 70% of large U.S. employers are using telehealth services, with 90% planning on providing this up-and-coming remote service by 2017, according to the National Business Group on Health.

No matter what your job title is, just about every industry in the health care sector has some sort of stake in telemedicine. Physicians, nurses, pediatricians, pharmacists, therapists, dietitians—you name it, there’s a remote job available for you.

While these health care jobs can usually be performed from just about anywhere, if you work in tech, a job at headquarters may be for you. In tech, you can find a job at these startups as a Java developer, quality assurance engineer, user interface (UI) designer, Android developer or iOS developer, just to name a few.
