However, the massive vaccination drive across the United States is unlikely to lessen the wide-scale adoption of telehealth services by Americans. Innumerable health woes induced by the COVID-19 pandemic have been plaguing the nation and new variants of the virus have been adding to the woes.

With a spike in coronavirus cases, remote connection of doctors with patients will continue to be the safer option for Americans. Usage of web-based or cloud-based applications will result in smooth integration of telehealth into existing clinical workflows and systems, thus improving provider and patient experience. Also, there needs to be enhanced reimbursement policies in place for telehealth visits, which is expected to provide a boost to the growing popularity of virtual platforms over the long term.
