Adoption of digital technologies surged during the pandemic, eliminating the need to go in person to see a health care provider and risk exposure to COVID-19. A recent study by FAIR Health found a 4,347% increase in telehealth claims to private insurers from 2019 to 2020. But many barriers to quality care linger post-Covid, including financial concerns, geographic limitations, lack of health care professionals in rural areas, social isolation, and needing to take time off from work.

As companies around the world think about safe return to work strategies, accessible telemedicine solutions can help businesses manage a sustainable and longstanding health plan, while helping to prevent employees from neglecting routine and vital health care.
