Telemedicine vs. In-Person Patient Visits:

The quality of physician-patient communication is a critical factor in treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction with care.  A recent study by web-based Electronic Health Record comparison site Software Advice asked patients if they prefer in-person visits as opposed to telemedicine visits with their provider.  The objective of the study was to determine whether physical separation and technology used during telemedicine have a negative effect on physician-patient communication.  The results were interesting.  75-percent of those surveyed expressed that they prefered using a telemedicine service instead of an in-person visit.  While patients expressed strong interest in telehealth services, they still had a number of concerns, such as:  missing in-person interaction, technical issues, lack of personal touch to name a few.  Software Advice also asked participants in the study who had used telehealth services within the past year about the benefits of using the video consultations.  Most people surveyed felt that telemedicine offered them high quality care, the convenience of not having to travel outside their home for a visit, seeing their doctor from the comfort of home, quicker access to care, shorter patient wait times, the ability to avoid exposure to other illnesses in a normal clinic patient waiting room and lower cost of care.
