DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems, today announced the debut of the Telehealth Resource Center, the latest in a series of telehealth offerings on healthgrades.com aimed at helping consumers connect with providers virtually. With this new resource center, consumers can instantly connect with a board-certified provider through a number of trusted telehealth platforms.
Since the onset of COVID-19, telehealth has seen exponential growth as consumers embrace virtual care to safely connect with providers. As shown in the ongoing Healthgrades COVID-19 Patient Confidence Study, 83% of consumers are comfortable participating in a medical appointment virtually, and over half of consumers have participated in a telehealth appointment since the beginning of 2020.
“Telehealth is now a common way consumers are connecting with their doctors. Doctors are also embracing virtual care to ensure that patients are still receiving the care they need -- no matter the location,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “The new Telehealth Resource Center, as well as the 430,000 providers on healthgrades.com that offer telehealth appointments, is a testament to the intrinsic value in this technology and the appetite that consumers have for 24/7 access to providers.”
In addition to seeking a telehealth appointment through the Telehealth Resource Center, consumers can also schedule a telehealth appointment with a specific provider through their healthgrades.com profile. Healthgrades.com visitors can also search providers that offer telehealth appointments or schedule a future appointment via provider profile calendars via online appointment scheduling.
