When it comes to medicine, quality and convenient care are essential. The world of medicine has also changed recently as a result of the covid-19 pandemic. With both of these things in mind, it’s no wonder that telehealth companies have been on the rise. In this video, you will get a more detailed look into just what telemedicine is and why its growth has really boomed in recent years.
As the video explains, telemedicine involves the use of electronic means in order to treat patients. For example, a meeting with a doctor could take place over the phone or computer instead of in person.
Telehelth services are getting more and more popular. In fact, it has seen a 34.7% growth rate in terms of revenue each year, according to IBIS World. It is also projected to more than double by 2026. This growth is in part caused by the pandemic because people saw a need to live their lives with limited in-person contact. Furthermore, even as the pandemic waned, people realized they enjoyed the convenience that telehealth provided and continued to opt for it out of want rather than need. It also takes some strain off of the health workers.
