Virtual visits: What you need to know

There’s a tremendous opportunity for providers to tap into the growing market for virtual visits—here's what to know before you consider going all-in.

The market for virtual visits is projected to grow rapidly in the coming years—and if you don't start serving the market today, you could be left behind tomorrow, as interest grows both among busy, cost-conscious patients, and overscheduled providers.

One sign of the scale of the opportunity? Fully 64% of patients say they would be willing to see a doctor over video, according to American Well's 2015 telehealth index consumer survey.
