Top 10 telehealth videoconferencing solutions for 2024

The COVID-19 pandemic catalyzed demand for telehealth videoconferencing. Experts believe the telehealth market will increase from $7.3 million in 2020 to more than $60 billion by the end of the decade, showing tremendous growth in both usage and the number of providers to choose from.

Beyond connecting patients with their healthcare providers, some professionals now use the technology to confer with other medical professionals about patients and discuss treatment plans.

Healthcare organizations have a major opportunity to implement this technology in their practices — the only issue is figuring out which solution works best for them.

Telehealth videoconferencing basics

Telehealth videoconferencing is an innovative digital form of healthcare delivery that allows patients to meet with providers over video, phone, or text-based chat. These tools enable easy access to annual checkups, prescription refills, and even mental health care.

Telehealth is now incredibly popular. To make the experience as effective as possible, providers need to find a tool that lets them easily connect with patients. Let’s explore the options to see which works best for your healthcare organization.
