mHealth Intelligence: Telehealth attendance higher than in-person among HIV patients

According to a study published in AIDS and behavior, HIV appointments conducted through telehealth resulted in higher attendance rates than those done in-person. During the study period, the attendance rate for telehealth appointments was 78.9 percent, substantially higher than the 61.9 percent for in-person visits. The study also found that patients with HIV found visits through telehealth to be far more accessible than in-person care during the pandemic. The study also found that Black HIV patients had a higher rate of telehealth usage compared to patients of other races, which was 19.9 percent higher than in-person appointment attendance, among other findings.
