Video visits go viral: COVID-19 sparks growth in video doctor’s visits

  • We predict that the percentage of total visits to doctors that are done virtually via video will rise to 5% globally in 2021, up from an estimated 1% in 2019. The relationship of this growth to COVID-19 is clear. While consider that 8.5 billion doctor’s visits, worth a total of approximately US$500 billion, took place in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) 36 countries in 2019 alone. Five percent of that would translate into more than 400 million video visits and about US$25 billion in value.
