The healthcare industry is in the midst of a historic transformation, as technological advancements continue to drive growth and innovation, increasing patient access to high quality healthcare and revolutionizing the practice of medicine in the U.S. The dynamic telehealth industry, which involves the use of virtual care programs and technology to deliver patient care, is at the heart of this transformation.
