As more clinical health care challenges surface due to COVID-19, some tools are helping medical practitioners deliver better care to patients.
There’s no question COVID-19 has affected all aspects of life, but the health care industry has been hit hard, especially as it relates to the effective delivery of services to patients.
Care clinics are medical centers where patients go to receive outpatient care services. These can include hospital clinics or public and private health clinics. Depending on the nature of services offered, there may be many professionals on a team including, physicians, social workers, occupational therapists, nurses, psychologists and psychiatrists, dentists, administrative staff, or any other type of specialist.
Providing patient care has always posed challenges, but today many additional challenges are proving to be particularly concerning as they impact the access and level of care patients can expect to see going forward.
Addressing challenges means clinics will need to implement virtual tools that support telehealth or hybrid care to deliver better and faster services. One report by McKinsey shows clinics are “moving from purely ‘virtual urgent care’ to a range of services enabling longitudinal virtual care, integration of telehealth with other virtual health solutions, and hybrid virtual/in-person care models, with the potential to improve consumer experience/convenience, access, outcomes and affordability.”
With a 50 percent boom in telehealth seen in 2020, and with a new analysis by McKinsey showing telehealth use increasing 38 times from the pre-COVID-19 baseline, hybrid virtual/in-person care models are here to stay—and HIPAA-compliant tools such as these will play a critical role in the delivery of services and quality of care for patients.
