After the great telehealth rush of 2020, healthcare providers who could offer HIPAA-compliant services while also being able to access their patients’ complete healthcare information remotely, came out ahead of the game. The practices that continued operating their organizations in a way that met the healthcare needs of their patients in a ‘no-beats-missed’ fashion achieved greater patient satisfaction and outcomes due to the continuity of care.
But across the country, this scenario was the exception more than the rule.
