Over the past decade, the focus of healthcare has slowly begun to shift from treating diseases to preventing their occurrence and maintaining good health. In order to achieve this, providers need a deeper understanding than what lab tests and physical examinations alone can provide.
Virtual care has helped physicians and specialists break down barriers to delivery of care by bringing the care to the patients, no matter their location, instead of bringing the patient to the care center. Hippo Technologies is on a mission to bring access to high-quality care to everyone, everywhere.

The COVID-19 pandemic led to drastic decreases in health spending over the last year as patients and providers were forced to delay routine care – leaving many hospital systems with significant revenue deficits. The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that many hospitals will continue to face declining revenue amidst the lingering economic crisis. In these uncertain times, Hippo Virtual Care can help decrease hospitals’ overall costs, while simultaneously increasing revenue potential.
It comes as no surprise that the COVID-19 pandemic will have lasting impacts on healthcare systems worldwide. Seemingly overnight, healthcare delivery changed from in-person to digital, transforming the norm. Providers who had previously been slow to adopt virtual care models had to quickly scale up programs to reach patients and ensure the continuation of their clinics during a time of unprecedented change.
