9 telemedicine companies making big hires
These companies are leading a digital revolution in the health care industry—and you can be a part of it.
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. Telemedicine companies are looking for a variety of workers—no matter what your job title is, just about every industry in the health care sector has some sort of stake in telemedicine.
The future of health care is happening remotely by way of speakers, video, and even elaborate holograms. According to a survey by First Stop Health, 91% of employers are expected to offer telemedicine by 2020.
Physicians, nurses, pediatricians, pharmacists, therapists, dietitians—you name it, there are telemedicine jobs available for you. While these 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.
