Building Better Healthcare: How Virtual Care and Remote Patient Monitoring are Key to the Digital Front Door
Virtual care is having a positive impact on healthcare, and it’s here to stay. A McKinsey report revealed that 11% of Americans used virtual care in 2019, and in 2020, 76% of patients said they were highly or moderately likely to use healthcare technologies. More patients have shifted to a positive view of virtual healthcare since the COVID-19 pandemic began. As virtual visits increase significantly, patients have reported an 86% satisfaction rate with their experience, and healthcare providers have reported reduced hospital readmissions and greater overall efficiencies. Overall, virtual care seems to be a win-win, and the demand is growing.
