The COVID-19 pandemic has broken down many barriers to telehealth. Professor Ravi Aron with the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston explains how technological advances will make this kind of patient care even more accessible.

“Telehealth is taking off, with doctors and patients taking advantage of both acute care and chronic care services delivered virtually. Federal regulatory changes have also made it easier to offer telehealth services in the U.S. Telehealth can be classified into generic care, such as a medical visit via a videoconferencing platform in place of a face-to-face visit, or specialized platform enabled care, which can include features like physician choice, scheduling, and patient portals.”

“With the advent of 5G telehealth, platforms will become more versatile and transform the delivery of care in the U.S. and indeed world over.”
