The new epidemic
Removing barriers to mental healthcare
Increase feelings of safety.
Allowing patients to access mental health support from the comfort and safety of their own homes is a considerable advantage compared to in-person sessions. In fact, 77% of patients say that safety is a major factor when choosing to use telehealth.1
Increase high-impact touchpoints.
Providers are now seeing 50 to 175 times the number of patients with telehealth than they did before COVID. It’s clear that telehealth helps providers and healthcare organization’s provide continued access to vital mental health support services and care programs, moving beyond clinic walls and into patients homes.
Save time and money.
Telehealth platforms allow each practitioner to treat more patients more effectively and reduce no shows. Over 57% of providers say they view telemedicine more favorably than before the pandemic, and are actually more inclined to use it in order to maximize efficiency, help automate their business, and provide better care to patients in the long-term.2
Enhance healthcare accessibility.
Offering virtual appointments removes time and space barriers by making healthcare more accessible for patients. For example, 69% of patients choose to use technology to access healthcare services they otherwise wouldn’t be able to receive. Moreover, 47% of patients agree that immediate availability makes healthcare more accessible, and they’re more likely to use telehealth as a result.3
