Forbes: As Telehealth Rises Due To Covid-19, Doctors’ Influence Wanes, New Survey Shows
According to a survey conducted by Oliver Wyman, telehealth is now a common feature of many Americans’ health care experience. More than one-third of survey respondents said they’d had a video visit with a health care provider at some point during the pandemic—triple the percentage in a 2018 version of this survey. For the vast majority (85 percent), it was the first time they’d tried it. Among those who have used telehealth, most were happy with it. More than one-quarter (29 percent) said their video visit was much better than a traditional office visit and 38 percent said it was about the same.
