Asynchronous Care: Reaching the Quintuple Aim of Healthcare Transformation
Virtual care is the path to expanding access for rural and disparate populations, but creating health equity requires modalities that work within patient and provider limitations. While patients face long wait times, rising healthcare costs, and other barriers to care, providers are burdened with capacity limitations. Staffing shortages and provider burnout are only increasing, making it difficult for healthcare professionals to allocate extra resources to expand access to care when providers can barely keep up with day-to-day patient demand.
If traditional in-person care and video visits were the answer, these problems would not plague our health systems. This webinar featured an in-depth conversation on leveraging asynchronous telemedicine to fulfill the quintuple aim of healthcare transformation:
- Reduce patient costs
- Improve the health of populations
- Improve the patient experience
- Achieve health equity
- Promote physician and staff well-being
