Making Strides Toward Greater Success in Virtual Care
Telehealth has been an elixir for hospital systems and medical practices both to resume care and to crawl out of the financial rubble caused by the pandemic.
In the larger context, telehealth is but one of several tools that have ushered in a new era of virtual care as an alternative resource for providers and patients. There’s also the option of billable virtual check-ins — 10- to 15-minute interactions between a caregiver and a patient either by smartphone video and audio, text, or phone call.
Virtual health also can be a critical advantage to providers in scheduling patients for much-needed preventive care and chronic care management. Though some preventive and chronic care — such as tests, screenings, or flu shots — may necessitate an in-office visit, many other types of maintenance appointments can be equally served through virtual health.
