Michael Archuleta comments on the rise of telehealth
The acceleration of digital transformation is here, and the mass adoption of telecommuting is the most explosive change to occur due to the coronavirus pandemic. The crisis has fully displayed the value of IT and digital transformation. Out of every crisis, a new opportunity arises, and telehealth is a key tool to continue to provide efficient care for patients.
The volume of telehealth consults have gone up several multiples since the pandemic struck. Health care organizations are intensifying their focus on strategic planning for a digital future and are preparing themselves to be ready to launch new initiatives when the crisis passes. I believe this unprecedented pandemic puts us in a position to be more progressive and open to learning from it. If we can take the experience gained from this unique challenge, we can evolve our practices and continue to invest in digital transformation, which will better allow us to design asynchronous tools that benefit our patients both inside and outside our organizations.
Focusing on digital transformation and incorporating IT as a core component to the organization strategy will take us to a much better space. Let’s continue to work together to transform our industry!
