Senior level executives of the largest healthcare systems in the U.S. got together at The Center of Health Design’s Built Environment Network. Here, the idea of telehealth and telemedicnce was a key point. a report from the 2017 survey of U.S. consumers showed that 74% of American’s are “interested in seeing their primary care physicians through telehealth.”
This can change healthcare delivery in 3 major ways:
Telehealth is becoming a popular way to receive care after clinics and offices close. ER’s remain a first choice for emergencies but noncritical care has been taking the route of telehealth appointments.
Within the survey it also revealed that patients would rather have an online visit than an in-office visit for common issues, chronic conditions or refills.
