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. The increased access to care and less missed appointments will result in healthier employees who will need to take fewer sick days. Thanks to the convenience of telehealth, instead of an employee having to drive for 30+ minutes to the doctor, wait in a waiting room for another 30min, then have an hour appointment, and drive the half-hour plus back to work, they can find a private place in the office and log in to their telehealth appointment with no extra hassle.
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.
