Patients are changing the way they are consuming healthcare and telehealth will continue to be a viable, preferred platform for healthcare. Practices will have to incorporate telehealth into their patient access strategy to continue being successful. However, for telehealth to become a long-term strategy, there are other options to consider.
According to the survey, operations workflow was ranked as the number one challenge while compliance was ranked as the lowest. Although compliance remains on everyone’s mind, the first hurdle to overcome is the ability to interact with patients and operate efficiently.
Alex, Brandt, Richard, and Mark discuss these and other key points from Coker’s recent telehealth survey of healthcare leaders.
