#ATA2021: Telehealth Is Key to Equity and Access for Every Patient Population

A recent survey by market research firm Parks Associates shows that 60 percent of people age 65 and older consider themselves familiar with telehealth. Jennifer Kent, vice president of research at the firm, gave an overview of the findings during a session titled, “Lessons Learned While Expanding Access and Care to the Aging Population.”

“Over the past year we’ve seen incredible growth in familiarity and use. A third of seniors say they’re extremely familiar with telehealth,” said Kent. “And 42 percent of consumers 65 and older tell us they have used telehealth services in the past 12 months. That’s up from just 6 percent in 2019. What’s even more incredible is that seniors are telling us they’ve had pretty positive experiences.”
