With the majority of the world following shelter-in-place guidelines due to COVID-19, telehealth applications have become the fastest and most reliable way for patients to receive care. By bypassing transport issues, heightened due to COVID-19, telehealth offers a powerful tool to mitigate healthcare issues and navigate the healthcare ecosystem.
By virtualizing care, telehealth is useful in terms of providing increased access to healthcare and faster communication, according to 90% of providers. For patients, telehealth provides a way to receive quick, urgent care and cut down on wait times at the doctor’s office. Telehealth can reduce patients’ hospital facility fees by over $1000 and can save the healthcare system $32 billion in avoidable ER visits. Moreover, 276 million people own and actively use mobile devices in the USA; it is necessary to make use of existing infrastructure involved in this to use telehealth to transform the way people experience healthcare.
As a healthcare enterprise, chances are that you already have a telehealth product in your arsenal of tools. However, there is no one-size-fits-all telehealth solution, or product purchased off the shelf, that fits perfectly in your line of operations.
