We know, we know—you’re fed up with hearing about COVID-19. But hear us out, when it comes to its impact on business, be it positive or negative, the pandemic has left no stone unturned. And yes, that includes the healthcare industry.
If you’re in any line of business, it should be clear by now that if you aren’t preparing for the future, then you’re just preparing for failure.
So, what does a 3-year-old virus mean for the future of healthcare practices?
1. Healthcare Is Going Virtual
You’ve been watching everyone around you shop and work from home, now get ready to heal from home. Seriously, telehealth usage is nearly 40 times what it was before coronavirus came into our lives.
That means healthcare providers offering online consultations and follow-ups are likely to attract more clients—and increase their bottom line—than “traditional” practitioners.
2. Online Learning Is Becoming the Norm
Who else remembers the time when online degrees were stigmatized? There’s no denying it, Corona took on the online education naysayers in a big way, and there’s no turning back now.
The Institute of Holistic Integrative Studies (IHIS), for example, offers business coaching, clinical mentorship, and a variety of remote learning packages for alternative health newcomers and experienced practitioners alike.
That proves healthcare and knowledge aren’t just going global, but becoming more accessible.
3. Integration is Inevitable
You can’t deny the facts, more and more states are recognizing the role that complementary therapies can play in the grand scheme of healthcare.
The progressive S.A.N.E. (supplements, ancillary, nutritional, and emotional) approach taken by IHIS is just one example of holistic healthcare hitting the mainstream.
Seriously, if you’re in a more conventional field, then it’s time to consider adopting more integrative approaches.
