Infographic: Do Patients Prefer Telehealth Over Human Contact?

The findings of a recent survey by Cisco suggest that a growing number of patients may prefer telehealth to human contact.

Although telehealth isn’t poised to imminently remove all human touch from healthcare by any stretch of the imagination, the melding of human expertise and technological precision in the application of healthcare is growing more pronounced with each passing year.

“The patient and care provider experiences are top of mind in health care around the world,” explains Kathy English, Senior Director of Public Sector and Healthcare Marketing at Cisco. “Due to the increasing convergence of the digital and physical, there is an opportunity to provide increased collaboration and information sharing among providers to improve the care experience and operate more efficiently.”
