A nationwide survey of 1,800 patients by healthcare marketing automation company Doctor.com found evidence of massive telemedicine adoption during the current pandemic, as well as growing demand for telemedicine services in the coming years. Most (83%) of the surveyed patients expect to use telemedicine after the pandemic, 55% are willing to use telemedicine to see new doctors, and 69% said "easy-to-use technology" would help them decide to make a telemedicine appointment. Moreover, 71% would consider using telemedicine services now, while 83% are likely to use such services after the pandemic. Doctor.com CEO Andrei Zimiles said, "As telemedicine becomes part of a 'new normal,' it is critical that providers begin shifting their long-term care strategies to incorporate virtual care and meet patients' rapidly evolving expectations for this channel."
