Three Key Considerations for Patient-Focused Telehealth
Even though virtual healthcare has been possible for over a decade, the technology officially became an integral part of the care process as a direct result of COVID-19.

True patient-focused telehealth addresses patient learning curves, implementation issues, and insurance limitations, but it also addresses primary care physician burnout and workflow concerns.
