Telemedical technology is changing the delivery of private and public healthcare.
Telemedical entities use a variety of electronic media including online, video and app-based consultations to provide care, treatment, advice and referrals for patients. With telemedicine already capturing 54% of the market in the US, it is anticipated that UK and Western Europe will follow by encouraging private companies in developing such platforms to relieve immediate pressure from front-line NHS services.
As an independent Broker at Lloyd’s we specialise in medical indemnity insurance, working with telemedicine and medical technology companies in placement of insurance in the UK. We are operated by doctors, for doctors – thus understand your insurance requirements and how we can add value to your telemedicine organisation, whether you are start-up or established.
