An article in Care Analytic News discusses the findings from a recent study co-authored by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Blue Health Intelligence®. The study found that telehealth consults among privately insured working-age patients accounted for almost 24 percent of outpatient consults with health care providers during the early phase of the pandemic, March to June 2020, up from less than 0.3 percent during the same period in 2019. The study was published online on March 23 in JAMA Network Open.
