When it comes to what’s trending in health care, there’s a “new kid” in town—virtual primary care.
What’s the buzz about? Telehealth has been on the rise during the pandemic, as patients have sought socially distanced care. And according to a recent article published by Fierce Healthcare, clinicians expect the popularity and adoption of telehealth to keep rising. Sixty-three percent believe virtual primary care could even bypass in-person care over the next five years.1
We understand how essential primary care is for keeping your employees healthy. And virtual care adds flexibility and convenience for a modern, seamless experience.
It’s also an opportunity to address some major pain points, including better health care access and higher utilization rates.
Plus, since studies show approximately 25 percent of Americans don’t currently have a primary care physician—virtual primary care can help them choose one easily.2
This opens the door to more personalized care, better outcomes, healthier patients and lower medical costs over time.
