In a new article in Medical Economics, Josh Weiner, president and CEO of SR Health by Solutionreach, looks at how virtual care can create personal connections between providers and patients.

"But COVID-19 has proven that communication technology can create enormously personal connections. In fact, virtual care may help deepen physician-patient relationships simply because it invites care conversations into the comfort of patients’ homes within the context of their daily lives."
