JAMA Network Open: Perceptions and Use of Telehealth Among Mental Health, Primary, and Specialty Care Clinicians During the COVID-19 Pandemic
A recent survey found telehealth utilization rates correspond with how clinicians perceive the effectiveness level, ease of use, and quality of virtual care services. The researchers surveyed clinicians who worked in clinics that specialized in either mental health, primary care, or specialty care. The survey found that mental health respondents were more likely than their primary care and specialty care colleagues to rate video care as having the highest quality. Researchers concluded that the opinions of clinicians regarding the quality of virtual care services had an impact on utilization rates of various telehealth modalities.
