In an ongoing effort to provide the most up-to-date resources to simplify the benefits experience, HealthJoy is delighted to share our 2021 edition of The Telemedicine Buying Blueprint.
Before COVID-19, telemedicine benefits suffered low utilization and lagging adoption, especially on carrier platforms. But we witnessed its resurgence during worldwide shutdowns, when its ease of use, low barriers to care, and cost savings made it too convenient to ignore.
Employees have a newfound appreciation for telemedicine that will last long after reopening is complete. Our Telemedicine Pulse Survey revealed that the pandemic pushed many people to try telemedicine for the first time — and more than half of those reported that this year, they will seek virtual options for all routine healthcare services and go in-person specifically for services that can’t be done virtually.
This preference has wide-ranging implications for teams hoping to support employees through virtual care. It indicates a sense of ease and comfort with these services and shows that now is the time for HR to make telemedicine’s value clear.
Maintaining Telemedicine’s Momentum for Your People
At a time of great uncertainty and optimism, telemedicine’s future remains unfailingly promising. Employees are turning to this solution like never before. The question for HR is: How can you make the most of this momentum to drive utilization and improve employee outcomes?
