Survey: Burnout may drive more telehealth adoption
from Fierce Healthcare
About one in five physicians currently use telehealth to care for patients up from about 5% in 2015 — and that figure is expected to soar within the next few years, a new survey from telehealth company American Well found. By 2022, more than half of physicians (61%) who are not currently using telehealth indicated they are either very likely or likely to start using telehealth representing half a million doctors, according to the survey, which polled 800 physicians. Among physicians who have tried video visits already, 15% currently use it two times a week or more — a figure that is projected to grow to 50% by 2022.
