As the pandemic surged, virtual care visits became the only option for many people who wanted to talk to a health professional. Although in-person visits are making a return, the digital infrastructure will remain in place, and consumers and the healthcare industry will spend much of the future navigating between the two (the Delta variant may have something to say about that).
This episode of Health Is On The Way discusses this future with guest Jim Pshock. The conversation covers topics and questions such as:
- The pros and cons of the shift to virtual care
- How will the choice of in-person and virtual care benefit patients and employers?
- The impact virtual health care has had on care received, specifically mental health care.
- How will digital correspondences such as calls, emails, and virtual visits be covered in benefits plans?
- Have we or will we see a tangible improvement in overall wellness during this shift?
