Interesting, from McKinsey:

“There is no doubt that the patient–provider experience during the past several months has accelerated virtual models of care by five to ten years.

…Hospital systems have been the drivers of our healthcare system. Our nurses and doctors in those hospitals have been heroes throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. But the reality is that if we want to lower costs, if we want to provide the best care, the future of healthcare has to be driven from outside of the four walls of a hospital system.

The “Health Care Crisis” is not a crisis of care it is a crisis of affordability. New techniques and new uses if digital technology will lower costs and improve quality. The linked article focuses on medicine but applies equally to dentistry. In dentistry we will eventually have to actually touch the patient but there are many diagnostic tasks and business tasks that can be done virtually.
