What the US Needs to Shift $250 Billion Towards Virtual Healthcare
Even as COVID challenged the world’s healthcare infrastructures, one of the silver lining stories of last year was the accelerated rise of telehealth and how effectively healthcare professionals were able to work with their clients remotely by leveraging these telemedicine tools.
