When putting together your health and wellness program, consider how telehealth will impact your program. The pandemic has pushed telehealth funding to skyrocket. Telehealth usage massively increased at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. According to the CDC, US telehealth visits increased 154% year-over-year in the last week of March 2020. After two years, it’s clear that telehealth has become a major part of healthcare delivery, and equity funding to telehealth startups in the space is at an all-time high. 

Telehealth Funding is Up

A report from cbinsights showed that in 2021, equity funding to telehealth companies reached nearly $18B, a 57% increase from 2020’s total. We can feel safe in assuming that all this spending means telehealth is here to stay.

Telehealth Benefits to Your Wellness Program

When implementing your health and wellness program, it can be highly beneficial to make sure that telehealth options are available to your participants. Telehealth increases access to care, decreases time away from work, and decreases missed appointments. Increased access to care and fewer missed appointments will lead to healthier employees. Consequently, these employees will need to take fewer sick days. Thanks to telehealth’s convenience, the lengthy process of driving and waiting for medical appointments is eliminated. Instead, employees can easily log into a telehealth session from a private office space. Therefore, telehealth not only saves time but also minimizes hassle for employees.

Telehealth can also help you remain compliant with various health program laws by making it easier to provide alternatives to employees who will require extra support for their healthcare needs. You can read more about health and wellness legal compliance here.
