Tell a friend. Tell a colleague. Telemedicine. Video doctor visits are all the rage in this epic year of not touching things or being in physical proximity to others, and we’re tracking it.
PYMNTS' inaugural Provider Ranking of Telemedicine Apps introduces us to brands both known and just starting to make their mark in the field of virtual medicine, which languished for years until the germ that shall not be named slapped a light-speed engine on the entire sector.
Keep your monthly appointment here as we check up on the booming telemedicine category.
