Session: The Virtual Health Ecosystem More Important Than Ever

It’s no secret that telehealth use skyrocketed in the early stages of COVID-19 as both patients and health systems sought to minimize the risk of transmitting the disease. According to data from the EHR vendor Epic Systems, telehealth visits in mid-April accounted for 69% of all ambulatory care visits. Telehealth is here to stay and the future will be centered on a virtual health ecosystem that leverages a range of technology to enable care to shift away from the clinical setting when appropriate. Telehealth solutions have certainly earned a lot of attention, and leaders in digital health technologies will discuss the future of virtual health.
