As the pandemic goes on, people continue to stay at home and avoid doctor's office visits if they can. Because of this shift, physicians are worried about how to adequately care for their patients.
Even as the need for virtual visits and remote patient monitoring increases, the use of telemedicine is increasing exponentially, too. A recent report says telemedicine will grow by seven times by 2025 (per Frost & Sullivan). This “tsunami” of growth is validated by some real-world stats, too: between March 2 and April 14, 2020 virtual urgent care visits grew by 683%, and non-urgent virtual care visits grew by a staggering 4,345% (per Healthcare IT News).
