For a long time, basic access to healthcare has been very personal, with patients visiting their healthcare providers. The adaptation of digital access to healthcare has, however, been slow. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed that and accelerated digitalization throughout the healthcare system. Increasingly, the point of access to care has shifted. The primary access point to healthcare is increasingly becoming digital rather than a physical visit to a doctor. Whereas only 11% of patients in the U.S. used telehealth solutions in 2019, this number has jumped to close to 50% since the start of the pandemic.1
Learn how the “Online Consultation” Project is driving the digitalization of Salzburger Landeskliniken (SALK) and enables access to holistic medical data from inside and outside SALK for physicians with the help of the platform strategy, so that data silos and barriers are reduced.
Siemens Healthineers has been further developing telehealth solutions by extending digitalization to transform care delivery. With more than 75% of healthcare providers interested in using telehealth solutions since the pandemic1, there’s never been a better time to invest.
