When TytoCare entered telehealth over a decade ago, the technology was “nice to have,” according to Stephanie Schmidt, area vice president for provider solutions at the digital health company.

“It went from something that was a nice to have, to something that was absolutely ‘need to have’ during the pandemic, and now I think we’re hitting our balance,” Schmidt told Fierce Healthcare.

As the pandemic wanes, digital health companies are partnering with health systems to integrate virtual care into their practices. Partnerships like those between TytoCare and Overlake Medical Center or Michigan State University Healthcare and RecoveryOne are crafting a long-term future for hybrid care.
