Will Telemedicine Save US Health Care?

A category of unsung heroes in this pandemic are those that have been behind a video screen. For some patients, telemedicine providers have offered the only safe and convenient access to acute and preventative health care needs for months now. I believe that the conversion to virtual care will be seen as one of the biggest tools utilized during the COVID19 pandemic that saved lives and saved us from each other. Without it, patients would either have had no access to care or be too afraid to find care during shelter-in-place. The reality is that when you think about the collective impact of telemedicine services at various companies and institutions, it is a huge part of flattening the curve.
