Telemedicine: Ensuring Access to Quality Healthcare

September 21, 2023 By: Quadax

Telehealth Awareness Week highlights the crucial role that virtual care plays in granting safe, high-quality healthcare access to individuals in need.

With virtual care continuing to be a crucial component in ensuring access to safe and high-quality healthcare services for everyone, Telehealth Awareness Week (September 17-23) offers a chance to emphasize the immense value of telehealth as an essential lifeline for communities nationwide.

Sponsored by the American Telemedicine Association® (ATA), this week offers a range of events shining a spotlight on the crucial role of telehealth in delivering care. Explore new educational resources that focus on the numerous benefits of an omnichannel care delivery system and hear firsthand accounts from both patients and healthcare professionals who have experienced the transformative power of telehealth in providing high-quality healthcare services.

According to a report by McKinsey & Company in 2023, the potential for more than 50 million in-person visits per year to be converted to virtual or telemedicine visits is estimated if telehealth adoption is extended equally across all patient segments. Telehealth has shown to improve access to care, with over 80% of physicians believing that patients have better access to healthcare since incorporating telehealth into their practice. Furthermore, 94% of patients who have experienced a telehealth encounter express their desire to continue having access to telehealth in the future.

Fortunately, the passing of the Telehealth Expansion Act of 2023 in June solidifies the telehealth flexibilities that were first introduced in the CARES Act of 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the ATA has developed innovative tools that can evaluate a community's digital infrastructure and provide an estimate of the cost for telehealth-based clinical or social interventions. These resources effectively demonstrate how virtual care can have a significant impact on addressing healthcare disparities.
