Does your company support Telemedicine? Better integrative solutions for you and your employees

Employees are increasingly demanding the convenience of virtual care, particularly since the start of COVID-19. In some cases, virtual care is the only option available to employees seeking access to care. 

A recent doctors.com survey determined the volume of virtual healthcare interactions was 10 times greater than pre-COVID-19 rates. Following wide-spread deployment of telehealth infrastructure in March and April 2020, large health systems, like NYU Langone Health, have seen telemedicine visit volumes sky-rocket by more than 500%. It's likely the trend will only continue to grow.

This is the best time to get on board, if your company isn't already. A survey of digital solutions found that a quarter of employees say digital health tools would have a positive impact on their decision to stay with employers. As a result, close to 70% of employers are planning to increase their investment in digital health solutions over the next 5 years.

Healthier, Productive, Loyal Employees 

If your company is going to start investing in employee health, it's worth looking into the best option for your money. Integrative care uses both conventional and complementary therapies, which are typically guided by a medical professional. Goodpath’s programs are tailored by our  medical team and include supplements, mind-body therapies, exercise, nutrition, and more.

According to Welltok, almost 9 out of 10 millennials would be more loyal to their healthcare providers if they addressed their total health the way integrative medicine does. In fact, 8 out of 10 expected greater healthcare delivery personalization.

Companies benefit as well; a cost utility analysis of an integrative approach to back pain, for example, reduced up to 23 doctors appointments per year, treated back pain 4 times faster than conventional care, and saved 12 working days per year. Additionally, the approach lowered pharmaceutical costs by over 85%, as observed in an analysis of claims and patient survey data.

Technology is quickly evolving within the healthcare industry. In order to keep up, the approach to employee health also needs to advance.
