Virtual health: The next frontier of care delivery

FromĀ  McKinsey:

For the past 10 to 15 years, virtual health has been heralded as the next disrupter in the delivery of care, but there has been minimal uptick in adoption. The COVID-19 pandemic is pushing against structural barriers that had previously slowed health system investment in integrated virtual health applications.

A nice overview on the current state and expected development of telemedicine. The article is focused on medicine but never the less as many good insights dentists should be aware of. As the article states the Covid pandemic has made people in general much more open to telemedicine. It has also reduced some of the structural barriers such as government regulations and insurance limitations.
