Study Highlights Benefits of the use of Digital Medicine
Noteworth, a first-of-its-kind transformative virtual care delivery platform, today released findings of their latest survey highlighting the ways in which digital medicine platforms helped organizations navigate the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Of the more than 250 medical professionals surveyed, two-thirds (68%) believe that healthcare organizations will continue engaging with patients via digital healthcare platforms post-pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges for America’s healthcare community. For a growing number of health systems and group practices around the country, greater use of digital medicine platforms will continue to be a way to treat patients effectively without a disruption in care due to pandemic-related factors. 86% of those surveyed felt that digital medicine platforms have greatly stepped-up their ability to deliver care and increase efficacy with their patients. Additionally, 47% noted that having a specialized data report that gives an overall view of the patient’s medical history was a key element in navigating the challenges that arose due to the pandemic.
“The survey results reinforce what we here at Noteworth have been saying all along; the availability of transformative virtual care tools allows providers to have greater engagement with and accountability for their patients and care team,” said Justin Williams, Co-founder and CEO of Noteworth. “In 2021, we expect to see even more of a focus on the importance of platforms like Noteworth, where clinicians are equipped with longitudinal patient data allowing them to deliver more personalized and proactive care that reduces the demand of costly care points and improves health outcomes.”
According to survey results, a majority of respondents (59%) said that the most significant benefit of using digital medicine platforms are remote monitoring and management for improved care. In addition, 56% said that patient engagement was a key advantage while another 49% said better access to care played a big part in the benefits of digital medicine.
Additional key findings include:
