s telehealth here to stay?

I have been asked this question many times over the years but recently it seems to pop up a lot more. The answer is “of course”, but what you saw 5 years ago, 1 year ago, or yesterday may not be the form it will take in the future.
Telehealth has been used for over 60 years. Dating back to the 1960s when Nebraska Psychiatric Institute had a program and Massachusetts General Hospital performed video consults at Logan airport. I am not sure who can be given credit for first using telehealth but it certainly is everywhere now. The US may have more implementations than other countries, but I have seen some very impressive uses of remote monitoring and COVID19 management in the UK and Pakistan.
So – asking whether telehealth is here to stay is almost like asking is healthcare here to stay.
Yes – next question.
