Striking the Perfect Balance Between Telehealth & In-Person Care
It seems like just yesterday many health systems didn’t consider implementing telehealth solutions to enable virtual patient visits as part of their overall care delivery strategy. There were many reasons for that—health systems weren’t bought-in on the ROI, they were concerned about clinician adoption and clinical efficacy, and they were unaware of whether patients would be interested in engaging with providers virtually. In 2020, there was a seismic shift across payers, providers, and patients alike due to the COVID-19 pandemic, forever changing the telehealth landscape and opening new doors for the future.
By deploying telehealth and hospital at home programs with patients, providers used audio and visual technologies to support care delivery strategies and address critical issues facing their organization—such as increasing hospital bed capacity and diverting non-critical patients from the emergency department. The future of telehealth in 2021 (and beyond) is filled with opportunity—and for payers and providers who lean in on the future of telehealth, the possibilities are endless.
