Remote healthcare – Is it for you?

While remote healthcare has been around for a while, the pandemic has kicked it into full gear.  The use of remote visits to prevent the spread of Covid-19 was a public health strategy but even as the pandemic wanes, remote visits are becoming the norm. 

But is it for the provider?

Whereas before most clinicians pre-Covid did not charge for remote visits, now there are diagnostic codes for billing, so it is good for the provider..

The provider staff isn’t responsible for putting the patient in a room, taking vital signs and signing the patient out. 

Remote care has greatly increased calls for the clinician’s office. What does calling for the 1) appointment, 2) day of visit for payment/co-pay, and 3 ) actual visit mean for you?  It means it is harder for you to get through to speak to office staff when you need them as staff are tied up answering remote visit calls.

Is it for the insurance companies?

It has been shown to decrease Emergency Room use thereby decreasing insurance companies costs.  

Remote monitoring means less travel and life/work disruption for you.  It offers you care when you need it, wherever you are, but remember it is also for the provider as it decreases no-shows.

It may provide you greater access to your clinician and if you have mobility issues it certainly is easier. It does give the provider additional information about you between in person visits so you may get better treatment.

It keeps you away from places with high infection rates: hospitals, clinics, doctors offices.

If you like being in the driver’s seat it may be for you.

It allows you to have more control of your health by taking your own pulse, blood pressure, EKG etc at home.
