Reasons for embracing Telemedicine.
Top reasons they are embracing this new model of care.1. It delivers a better experience that will retain and attract patients. Patients consistently report high satisfaction with telehealth encounters, because it provides convenient after-hours care options and reduces wait times, travel time, and costs associated with accessing care at traditional care settings. This high satisfaction leads to a better overall experience and a greater affinity for the health system. Naturally, telehealth can be a draw for an existing patient to stay with their doctor if they can see them more regularly over video and may attract new patients beyond the immediate vicinity of that hospital or system. 2. It reduces hospital admission rates. Hospital readmission rates are a big issue today and with huge associated costs. Telehealth can help reduce admission rates by enabling doctors, care managers, or pharmacists to see patients over video for follow-up care and care management for chronically ill and post-surgical patients. 3. Systems can enhance the depth, breadth, and distribution of medical providers and specialists. Telehealth enables hospitals to distribute staff and expertise throughout the system while providing access to more specialists. This ensures that patients have timely access to the doctors they need to see without appointment scheduling, waiting and longer-term coordination. Telehealth also greatly improves provider-to-provider communication enabling doctors to easily share information, resulting in care that is more coordinated and cost effective. Finally, with telehealth, multi-disciplinary teams can more easily be assembled to care for a patient or a panel of patients. 4. Systems can cut costs through more preventative outreach. As more patients are covered under alternative or value-based reimbursement arrangements, hospital systems need to find ways to engage and manage chronically ill patients. By reducing the number of preventable admissions, from complications like diabetes, dehydration and heart conditions, hospitals can greatly reduce their costs. Telehealth facilitates consistent and convenient ongoing monitoring for those at-risk for hospitalization, ensuring patients are as healthy as possible. 5. The ability to help improve clinical outcomes. Patients who participate in their care have significantly better outcomes. Telehealth is a powerful tool to drive patient compliance with medication and post-discharge instructions, as well as connect them more easily with physicians and caregivers.
