About the study:

The study presented in the report draws from an online survey conducted with 1,358 U.S. adults on January 10, 2024, who sought healthcare from primary care physicians, medical specialists, and mental health providers between January 2023 and January 2024. It reveals that the majority of healthcare interactions during this period were in-person (71%), with a significant portion of patients (24%) experiencing care both in-person and via telehealth, and a smaller group (5%) engaging solely through telehealth services. This comprehensive methodology ensures the findings are reflective of current patient preferences and behaviors, offering a robust basis for the actionable recommendations provided in the report.
