Virtual Care Services Becomes More Mainstream

Virtual care services are becoming a more favorable option to consumers while there are few affordable and convenient options for healthcare. Based on a study from virtual care provider, Doctor on Demand (DoD), primary care is changing and patients are becoming more interested in the benefits virtual care has to offer. The study was conducted to help consumers better understand the state of primary care in American today, their perceptions and behaviors around it, and the role that virtual care plays. These findings, in which over 1,000 consumers across the country were surveyed, showed nearly three-quarters of consumers understand what their primary care physician can treat, but more than a quarter of them do not see their primary care physicians for ongoing preventive care. DoD says it has been reported that many consumers don’t see their primary care physicians until needed and nearly half of millennials don’t have a primary care physician at all. Some of these deciding factors can be the cause of time, cost or is not worth the visit. Although, through virtual care a video chat between physicians and patients more than half of consumers see it as a quick solution for one-off instances, while less than a quarter believe you can establish a relationship with a primary care physician virtually.
