Abridge, Telehealth Company:In Fierce Healthcare, Abridge’s co-founder and CEO Shiv Rao, MD explains how to overcome 3 challenges exposed in the new world of telehealth and how to overcome them.

“Visits to primary care doctors were down by as much as 60% in early April, and while momentum has started to shift, overall visits are still down by almost 20% when compared to typical levels.

This is concerning because it’s not as if chronic conditions have tapered off — people still need care to help manage their health. And the threat here is significant. Patients have delayed the care they need due to fear of the coronavirus, in some cases leading to death.

While promising, the acceleration of telehealth has come with some speed bumps that have been revealed with the rapid move to video conferencing and telephone-based appointments.” – Shiv Rao, MD
