Telehealth has transformed the way healthcare is delivered, providing accessible and convenient healthcare services to millions of Americans. As we celebrate Telehealth Awareness Week this September 17-23, 2023, it's essential to highlight the contributions of innovative telehealth platforms like Coviu in supporting special education, speech-language pathologist and behavioral health markets, to name a few.
Telehealth Awareness Week will showcase the many ways virtual care improves access to quality healthcare services for all communities with this year's theme #TelehealthIsHealth. By recognizing the synonymous relationship between telehealth and healthcare, this week emphasizes the concept that blended care models represent the future, where telehealth is an essential and integral component of healthcare delivery across the entire spectrum of care.
Moreover, the theme emphasizes the importance of proactive health management by enabling regular check-ins with healthcare providers, ultimately promoting preventive care. #TelehealthIshealth underscores the notion that good health should not be constrained by physical distances or logistical challenges, and it celebrates the transformative potential of telehealth in improving the overall well-being of individuals and communities.
Where Healthcare Delivery is Headed with Telehealth
In recent years, healthcare has witnessed a remarkable shift towards telehealth services. The catalyst for this transformation was the COVID-19 pandemic, which underscored the critical need for remote healthcare access while minimizing in-person visits to reduce the risk of viral transmission. Telehealth swiftly emerged as a lifeline for both patients and healthcare providers, ensuring uninterrupted care during challenging times.
Today, the trajectory of telehealth appears vastly different from its pre-pandemic state. Overcoming significant inertia, the digital health field has become more accessible and user-friendly, thanks in part to platforms like Coviu. While telehealth previously relied on expensive and cumbersome hardware, Coviu's Software as a Service (SaaS) accessibility has ushered in a revolutionary era of increased access and adoption in the digital health realm.
The future of digital health is poised to encompass several key themes. Firstly, there is an increased demand for innovation, reflecting a technologically savvy population. Secondly, an emphasis on a proactive and patient-centric approach to healthcare is predicted, particularly with the integration of features such as remote patient monitoring and digital therapeutics. Additionally, the future model will embrace measurement-based virtual care, with greater interoperability, bringing together systems of action (telehealth systems) and systems of record (electronic healthcare systems).
Coviu stands at the forefront of these transformative changes in the landscape of healthcare, playing a vital role in shaping the future of digital health and telehealth services.
