Johns Hopkins surpasses 1.5M telehealth visits since start of COVID-19 pandemic

Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine has surpassed 1.5 million telehealth visits since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

John Hopkins clinicians have visited with more than 420,000 patients via telehealth since the pandemic began. While there are still visits that require in-person consultations, 60 percent of Johns Hopkins clinicians have used telemedicine since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Sept. 19 Johns Hopkins news release.

"It's really become part of routine outpatient care two and a half years after the start of the pandemic," Helen Hughes, MD, medical director for the Office of Telemedicine at John Hopkins, said. "Now it's our job to figure out how to make it the best that it can be and make sure that we're offering the best clinically and technically."
