American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN): Survivor Views: Telehealth and Clinical Trials
A new survey shows cancer patients and recent survivors have had a positive experience using telehealth in the wake of the pandemic and are willing to use or adapt to using telehealth services in the future. According to the new Survivor Views survey from the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), an overwhelming 94% of patients said their issues and questions were addressed well through their telehealth visit with two-thirds saying their issues were very well addressed. Most respondents reported having had a phone visit with a telehealth provider about an issue directly related to their cancer care (55%) while some (43%) said they used a video visit. Those in urban areas were more apt to use video (55%) while those in rural areas were more likely to use the telephone visits (64%).
