It is important to acknowledge that continuity of care or post-treatment care can be just as important for a patient’s health and well-being as the treatment itself. Proper continuity of care does not just improve patient outcomes, but it can make sure the patient avoids having to revisit doctors or hospitals, saving time, money, and stress for both patients and healthcare providers. Telehealth and telemedicine can help assist healthcare providers provide enhanced and convenient continuity of care.
Telehealth consultations are increasingly becoming a preferred option to have worldwide, partially due the effects of the pandemic on patient safety and overburdened hospitals. In fact, teleconsultations through video can be very effective as the Mayo Clinic found that “in 75% of consultations, the virtual provider is able to resolve the patient’s concerns; 25% of patients continue on to additional in-person appointments”. Remote consultations allow patients in recovery and those who may be considered at risk to safely consult healthcare providers in a more comfortable environment. It also improves access for those who may find it difficult to travel or just not have the time, while providing healthcare providers a more efficient way to check on patients who may not need immediate medical attention.

They can include many different helpful functions to aid your patient’s recovery. They can be used to help manage the medications and prescriptions healthcare providers require for their patients. Along with allowing patients to easily notify their doctors of any side effects or even in some cases, update their dosage in real time. Technology is constantly improving and allowing for the innovation of new functions in telehealth solutions.
