Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine: The Impact of Telehealth on Primary Care Physician Panel Sizes: A Modeling Study

Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine: The Impact of Telehealth on Primary Care Physician Panel Sizes: A Modeling Study This study explores the potential for telehealth to significantly increase physician capacity by reducing nonvalue adding activities and patient no-shows. The study found that tele-visits reduce the nonvalue-added time physicians spend with patients as well as patient no-shows. At current levels of tele-visit utilization, the use of tele-visits may translate into more than a 10 percent increase in patient panel sizes assuming a modest reduction in visit durations and no-shows, and as much as a 30 percent [...]

Cureus: Telemedicine Patient Satisfaction and Cost: A Comparative Study in the COVID-19 Era

Cureus: Telemedicine Patient Satisfaction and Cost: A Comparative Study in the COVID-19 Era Telemedicine has the potential to enhance access to health care services across distances, which was of great value during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, concerns about user satisfaction in comparison to face-to-face (FTF) interaction remain inadequately addressed. This study demonstrated that the telemedicine group had patient satisfaction levels similar to those of the FTF clinical visit group, having a lower cost of care. Factors associated with patient satisfaction with telemedicine clinical care are identified and discussed. Both groups showed similar results in overall satisfaction with substantial [...]

For the new study, researchers compared two types of care for moderately severe, uncontrolled high blood pressure: traditional clinic-based care, using face-to face visits with doctors and medical assistants, and telehealth care, with home blood pressure telemonitoring and home-based care coordinated via telephone by a pharmacist or [...]
