“So how can health systems and clinicians provide patients with an improved, consumer-friendly experience while also making strides to decrease provider administrative burden and burnout? They need to embrace virtual care beyond just video visits and look toward asynchronous telehealth. Asynchronous care allows providers to treat patients for common, low-acuity conditions online without a real-time, face-to-face interaction. It automates both the patient interview and clinician documentation, and provides clinical decision support while maintaining provider autonomy, keeping the clinician in control of diagnosis and treatment. Looking ahead, asynchronous telehealth holds unlocked potential for improving access and convenience for patients, reducing physician burnout, and driving efficiencies in care delivery to ultimately lower costs and improve outcomes.”
Christina Chen is a family medicine physician.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Debunking the myths around asynchronous care.”
