COVID-19 could further change how our health care system works

[KMSP Fox 9, July 12, 2020] In the few months since the pandemic began, virtual doctor's visits have become a necessity as we try to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The virus has changed so much that a vice president at Allina says they believe COVID-19 accelerated advancements in the way they deliver healthcare by two to five years.

The coronavirus pandemic forced hospitals and doctors to speed up offerings for patients to visit online.

“Six months ago, if you would have said, we were doing 5,000 virtual visits a day, I would have laughed and said, What planet are you from?” said Dr. Dave Ingham with Allina Health.
