With or without the pandemic, telehealth is here to stay, revolutionizing healthcare as we know it.
According to a recent survey of from Metova, of the 1,000 people surveyed in the U.S., “80%, if given the option, would choose telemedicine for their next medical appointment, 79% have wanted to connect with a medical professional using video conferencing and 93% were either satisfied or very satisfied with their telemedicine experience. With many wishing to avoid medical waiting rooms due to COVID-19, we’re expecting an acceleration in demand for telemedicine. Fortunately, technology now provides the means to provide patients with no-compromise personal consultations, all from the comfort and safety of the patients home.”
In addition, telehealth doesn’t look like it’ll go away – at least not any time soon. In fact, “Several telehealth companies are looking to go public or are exploring sales, The Wall Street Journal recently reported. The global market is projected to grow from $25.4 billion this year to $55.6 billion by 2025,” as noted by WebMD.
