As technology has advanced and our world has changed, we have begun utilizing technology in ways that we didn’t have before. Over the past decade, there have been immense technological advancements in regard to telehealth solutions.
Telehealth is a way to receive care from a primary care provider or other medical professional virtually. Typically done online on a computer, cell phone or other electronic device, telehealth allows you to obtain care without having an in-person office visit.
The world has changed drastically since the Covid pandemic in early 2020. During the pandemic, healthcare providers were inundated with patients, so to ensure quality care, the utilization of telehealth rose drastically. Telehealth has been a new way to communicate with a provider from the safety of your home. During the global pandemic, many individuals found it safer to utilize telehealth instead of going to a provider in person. Now, telehealth is still on the rise, for convenience more than necessity.
