30. Virtual appointments and advanced telemedicine are in the now.
During the Covid 19 pandemic, telemedicine took a great leap forward. An estimated 24 percent of healthcare organizations already had existing telehealth programs by January 2020. According to an analytics firm called Forrester, the country was set to complete over a billion virtual care visits by the end of the year. Many of telehealth’s regulatory barriers have been removed after being forced into functionality. Healthcare organizations now have nearly a year’s worth of data on improving and evaluating telehealth services.
In 2021, many healthcare organizations will be focusing on how they can best integrate telehealth services with their existing physical ones. Virtual visits will continue to be used to increase access to primary and urgent care. They can help improve collaboration with long-term care facilities, clinics, dialysis centers, and mental health services. Virtual visits help anyone unable to make it to any appointment. That goes for health reasons, transportation, weather, or anything else. Moreover, since we are still in a pandemic, it does help those who want to avoid exposure as much as possible but still get the help they need.
