Locum Tenens and Tele Locum Services

American TelePhysicians is a pioneering force in the field of tele locum services, i.e. Locum Tenens Services through advanced telemedicine, boasting an extensive network of more than 300 physicians with expertise in multiple specialties, as well as software and hardware solutions for seamlessly delivery of in-facility physician coverage. This positions the organization adeptly to meet the varied requirements of hospitals and assisted living facilities throughout the United States.

What is Locum Tenens?

Locum tenens work involves physicians stepping into a temporary role, covering for colleagues who are on leave, addressing seasonal fluctuations, or filling in during recruitment processes. This type of arrangement benefits both healthcare facilities and the doctors themselves. Facilities can maintain uninterrupted services, and physicians can explore diverse work environments without the long-term commitment of permanent positions.

The Rise of Tele Locum Services


As the healthcare industry embraces technological innovation, telemedicine has emerged as a transformative force. Tele locum services combine the flexibility of locum tenens with the efficiency of virtual consultations, presenting a viable alternative to conventional in-person locum work. This evolution is driven by several factors:

  • Cost-Effectiveness

​​Tele locum services significantly reduce costs associated with travel, accommodation, and other logistical aspects traditionally linked with locum tenens. Hospitals and senior living facilities can allocate resources more efficiently, directing funds towards enhancing patient care and overall facility improvements.

  • ​Access to a Wider Pool of Physicians:

Tele Locum services break down geographical barriers, enabling healthcare facilities to tap into a broader network of physicians. American TelePhysicians, with its network of over 200 multispecialty physicians, offers a diverse talent pool that can cater to various medical specialties and sub-specialties.


  • Efficient Staffing Solutions:

The instantaneous nature of virtual consultations allows for quick deployment of tele locum physicians in times of urgent need. This responsiveness is crucial in maintaining optimal patient care standards and mitigating potential disruptions in healthcare services.

  • Flexibility for Physicians:

Doctors, too, benefit from the flexibility that tele locum services provide. They can choose assignments that align with their expertise and preferences, all while working remotely. This flexibility can lead to a better work-life balance, reducing burnout and improving overall job satisfaction.
