Report Finds Independent Practices Emerge From Pandemic Stronger With Increased Use of Telehealth

mHealth Intelligence reported that “Independent medical practices are emerging from the chaos of the pandemic on stronger footing—thanks in no small part to telehealth.” That conclusion is according to “a new report from Kareo [that] finds that more than half the practices saw patient visits stay the same or grow in 2020, and three-quarters expect to see growth in 2021.” It also found that “the telehealth adoption rate among practices jumped from 22% in 2019 to 41% in 2020 to 80% at the end of that year.”

The report on independent practices can be found here or in the attached PDF.
