Has Covid forced us to recognize telemedicine's value

 

 COVID-19 has caused a massive acceleration in the use of telehealth. Telehealth has helped expand access to care at a time when the pandemic has severely restricted patients’ ability to see their doctors.

According to a survey done by Mckinsey & Company, they estimate a shift from 11% in 2019 to 76% jump to telemedicine going forward. While the surge in telehealth has been driven by the immediate goal to avoid exposure to COVID-19, with more than 70% of in-person visits cancelled. They also estimate close to 74% of the people are satisfied with the healthcare they receive during teleconsultation.

Many of these dynamics are likely to be in place for at least the next 12 to 18 months, as concerns about COVID-19 remain until a vaccine is widely available to the general public. During this period, the consumers’ preferences for care access will continue to evolve, and virtual health could become more deeply embedded into the care delivery system.

Many health seekers say that because of the sudden rise in doctors who have listed themselves in some platform for online consultation they have found a new freedom to stay home while consultation.

Mr Rajeshwaran, 32, a software employee and an S10.Clinic user told us that he is finding it easy to consult the doctor when he wants too. “Before when I had to meet my doctor, I had to take either full day or half day leave from work. But now with S10.Clinic I can do consultation in the comfort of my home. I find this easier than going to a hospital especially now during the pandemic.”

S10’s research into the market shows that telemedicine during the pandemic has grown and now it will continue to remain steady as people have seen the convenience in it. Dr Sushindri Sridharan, Director, S10.Clinic says, “A lot doctors have to make this shift someday or another. Why not now? We are a HIPAA compliant company. With our services doctors have ease of using our online consultation and giving out e-prescriptions in a few clicks. Plus this is the right time to join with S10.Clinic as we have a free sign up campaign also going on as well.”

With the advancements in technology this looks to be a good, viable, safe future for all of us looking to satisfy our healthcare needs.
