Healthcare Insights and Perspective


  • Ten million people in the United States live in counties with low physical access to healthcare facilities, providers, and limited or no broadband access (McKinsey). Telehealth has skyrocketed—not just due to COVID-19, but also to treat patients in hard-to-reach areas with a lack of healthcare providers and facilities. Telehealth also saves on hospital overutilization costs when patients avoid coming to the hospital or ER for every issue.
  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, revenues in the healthcare industry fell 50 percent due to patient uncertainty over visiting healthcare facilities (Forbes).
  • Global healthcare funding reached $31.6B in Q1 2021.
  • COVID-19’s effect on minority groups has revealed significant inequity in outcomes for them: racial inequity, healthcare access disparity, social and behavioral health, and physical wellbeing (McKinsey).
