The top issue consumers have in telehealth consultations is not the technology, it's not the claim or reimbursement aspect of it. It really is about the ability to understand the medical professional. So if that's not achieved, there's significant declines in satisfaction.
We know that consumers place a high preference and a high degree of trust when they're dealing face to face with medical teams. And we believe we are seeing the same level of confidence and trust in telehealth, whether over the phone or visually. If they’re dealing with a qualified physician, satisfaction scores tend to trend very high.
