"Coming out of 2020, the world really underwent a significant change, both medically and culturally, prompting millions of consumers to really re-evaluate how they are getting health care and their perspective on digital and virtual healthcare," Bentley said. "Through that research, we really found that health care needs can be effectively and appropriately treated through digital modalities as long as there is a focus on the convenience aspect of it, so consumers can get the personalized and attentive care that they need."
