Bret Larsen is the CEO and Co-Founder of eVisit, a virtual care platform that is serving the largest health systems in the country to establish remote access for a telemedicine solution that works for patients as well as hospitals, doctors, and administrators.

Bret says, "One of the things the pandemic accelerated in a big, big way was the consumerization of care. It forced us, as consumers, not patients, but consumers, to look for more options. With many physical encounters being closed or highly limited, we had to start looking for other options."

"I strongly believe that the future exam room will be your living room, or your bedroom, or somewhere where you can be diagnosed and suggested treatment, and then directed to the most appropriate point of care, whether that be an asynchronous interaction, a synchronous interaction, or the physical exam room at the hospital. So, the interoperability piece is enormous. It stands to accelerate the improvement of patient outcomes in a big, big way."

The eVisit Enterprise Virtual Care Platform was named the Solo Leader by Forrester Research in The Forrester Wave ™: Virtual Care Platforms for Digital Health, Q1 2021.  Download your complimentary report here.
