The ongoing COVID-19 Telehealth Impact Study, which continues to publish its results online, along with its state-by-state telehealth progress tracker. The Chartis Group and Kythera Labs, have brought together a team of data scientists, visualization experts and industry thought leaders to develop the Telehealth Adoption Tracker, an advanced analytic tool designed to measure how COVID-19 has driven rapid telehealth adoption across the country.
