Optimizing Telehealth to Benefit Patients and the Bottom Line

During the pandemic, telehealth was the best option for many patients to access healthcare. Now that society is returning to normal, patients will return to in-patient visits, but evidence indicates they still want access to virtual visits.

A recent survey by Medusind found that 37 percent of practices in various specialties that did not offer telehealth before the pandemic will continue to provide it after, raising the percentage of healthcare organizations providing telehealth after the pandemic to 66 percent.

The question now for organizations continuing virtual visits is how to best optimize telehealth to benefit their patients, their providers, and their bottom line.
