With developments in technology, health care options are becoming more and more diverse. One of the fastest-growing segments of the health care industry is telemedicine, a market that is expected to grow to $113.1 billion by 2025. In fact, the use of telemedicine programs has increased 45 percent every year between 2004 and 2014 for mental health visits alone. Telemedicine programs use phone calls, video chatting and patient-recorded data to help diagnose and treat patients remotely, as opposed to in-office visits.
These advances in health care technology are especially convenient for women in the working world, because they make health care more easily accessible and allow you to prioritize often-overlooked aspects of health care, like mental health.
