The recent explosion in telehealth use comes as no surprise given the COVID-19 crisis. However, even before the coronavirus, more patients and doctors were seeing the value of telehealth. Patients and health care providers accept – and even prefer – digital technologies as an essential part of health care delivery. Using digital platforms to deliver care minimizes in-person visits, helping to keep patients and providers healthy during the time of COVID-19. And telehealth can improve access to care, especially in rural areas where a patient can connect with a doctor within seconds, rather than driving long distances for an office visit.
