The Virtual Future of Long-Term Care

As the healthcare industry becomes increasingly complex with a heightened focus on value‐based care, providers need easy access to 24/7 physician services to ensure optimal patient outcomes.

Virtual care, and specifically telehealth, has become a critical tool in that effort.

Continued Growth of Telehealth

Recent data from McKinsey found that telehealth utilization has stabilized at levels 38 times higher than before the pandemic, and for good reason. This technology delivers many benefits in all healthcare settings.

Telehealth tools offer:

  • Increased access to healthcare services
  • Reduced travel and stress for patients
  • Improved patient monitoring
  • Saved organizational resources
  • Enhanced communication among stakeholders

The subsequent time through using this technology enables caregivers to up-level their care delivery and spend more quality time with the individuals in their care. This quality time has consistently improved the overall staff experience and boost morale, considerations that are more important than ever amid the current staffing crisis.

Serving the needs of the senior population

The senior population is expected to reach 74 million people, or approximately 23% of the U.S. population, by 2030.

Now is the time to invest in the technology and tools needed to improve health outcomes and quality of life for our rapidly aging population.
