Virtual Healthcare: Will it become the new normal?

Clearly consumers are not only becoming aware of telemedicine but starting to demand access to it. It is becoming a part of the standard of care that should be made available throughout the country

Virtual Health leverages on analytical and digital technologies to bridge the gap between patients and clinicians, and creates a wide range of opportunities for delivering excellent health care experience by establishing a close virtual connectivity and therapeutic relationship. Let’s look at some of the ways by which virtual healthcare experience can be enhanced through collaborative efforts for delivering sustainable results in the virtual healthcare journey.

Organisational leaders need to build a robust framework for developing strategies that would aim at providing life centric care to patients. This would help in addressing short term goals and chalk out a clear road map for delivering scalable virtual healthcare solutions in the future. Key factors like active engagement with patients, affordability, expanding patient and physician access and enhancing care through effective monitoring and coordination needs to be considered for delivering efficient clinical outcomes through digital transformation.

Leaders need to identify opportunities provided by virtual healthcare and align their teams for developing an enterprise pipeline for providing better clinical services. Adequate training needs to be provided to the team members for infrastructure development and integrating virtual healthcare into their workflows. Virtual health solution helps in providing continuous and dedicated care by integrating the existing healthcare records that provides clinicians enough inputs for timely effective decision making. The successful clinical adoption of virtual healthcare would depend on the quality and reliability of the solutions provided that can instil confidence for reducing the fears and anxieties across the healthcare spectrum.

Virtual healthcare provides modern ways of connecting with patients through telehealth and synchronous care.

Telehealth care provides specialised diagnosis and treatment irrespective of patient demographics and geographies through video conferencing and remote monitoring.

It helps in delivering the right care at the right time for example remote monitoring of vital parameters, blood pressure.

It helps in achieving better practice efficiency and healthcare quality through effective patient engagement and interaction.

It also provides better access to health assessment, diagnosis, information sharing and consultation resulting in reducing costs for the patients.

Virtual health helps in providing health and social data that can be used for generating valuable insights for transforming the care ecosystem for effective coordination of healthcare and disease management.

It also helps in alleviating critical issues related to behavioural health and social determinants of health through trust and reassurance.
