Effects of COVID-19 on Telehealth
COVID-19 has created drastic changes in the Healthcare Industry as a whole. Hospitals, physician offices, clinics, and outpatient departments have all seen their patient volume decrease, mainly due to patients being worried to leave their homes to go to a doctor’s appointment. Obviously, an understandable fear of potentially contracting COVID, among other reasons.
As a result, telehealth services such as Hopdoc (a Dr. Leonardo Premier Partner) are becoming increasingly important as they are able to provide care and services to patients through the Internet and minimize the need for in-person sessions which reduces the potential spread of Coronavirus.
In order for telehealth to continue to provide safe services to patients, healthcare providers must be available to their patients easily and efficiently on the web.
A website is more important than ever!
Patients need to know where to reach you and Dr. Leonardo can help you accomplish this. A Dr. Leonardo website will allow your patients to schedule appointments, conduct telehealth sessions, pay and open medical bills and co-payments, access their patient portal and more -- all online with a few clicks of a button.
