Few things are more important than taking care of our health, but seeking out the support we need is easier said than done. For many, taking care of physical and emotional needs frequently takes a backseat to the competing priorities of a career, family and finances. Between the skyrocketing costs of healthcare and the increasingly overwhelming nature of our everyday lives, it’s no surprise that around 30 percent of Americans skipped out on doctor’s visits altogether during 2021. 

Telemedicine promises to help in this area. Telemedicine itself is a broad umbrella term encompassing companies that offer mindfulness exercises, workout guidance, video therapy, tracking tools for managing special conditions and much more. All can be carried out from the comfort of patient homes, often at a lower price than traditional hospital care. Lately, utilizing telemedicine has never been more necessary.

These 29 telemedicine companies are helping transform how we seek care, removing barriers and encouraging personal wellness management for everyone. Take a look at how they’re helping us put our health first.
