The COVID-19 pandemic fueled the rapid adoption of telehealth in 2020 as the need for a remote option for healthcare grew. Today, patients are continuing this trend, frequently starting their healthcare journeys online recognizing that they can receive high-quality, affordable care to address their everyday healthcare needs virtually as a complement to in-person care.
Virtual care is now seen as essential by many patients and those in the industry, and the new industry standard for patient-centric care includes both virtual and in-person options. One of those virtual options is direct-to-patient healthcare. Direct-to-patient healthcare offers care without the prerequisite of insurance.
