After a huge drop in practice visits, elective healthcare procedures resume in some areas of the US
from By Scott E. Rupp
The following should come as no surprise to anyone whatsoever — outpatient and medical practice visits have cratered since March because of the COVID-19 pandemic. A new study showing this data comes from The Commonwealth Fund, conducted by researchers from Harvard University. Per the study, outpatient visits dropped by 57% between March 1 and March 29. Visits were down 54% as of April 12. Telemedicine visits increased along with the drop in in-person visits, but not enough to offset the decreases.
