The Covid-19 pandemic has, without a doubt, accelerated the use of technology in our day-to-day lives. The healthcare sector has seen one of the most profound changes, where 84% of physicians made virtual visits available as of April 2021. A swift governmental transformation in telehealth intervention set off a technological gold-rush to put the systems in place to service this new area.
The collaboration between tech and healthcare is the reason why the quality of care improved or was not impacted; for example, according to the CDC, telehealth visits increased 30.2% between June 26- November 6, 2020. Regulators like Medicare, the largest single healthcare payer in the US, have also made strides to incorporate new breakthrough technologies for Medicare recipients.
