Virtually Perfect? Telemedicine for Covid-19 (w Voice; 04/30/2020) | @NEJM
… A central strategy for health care surge control is “forward triage” — the sorting of patients before they arrive in the emergency department (ED). Direct-to-consumer (or on-demand) telemedicine, a 21st-century approach to forward triage that allows patients to be efficiently screened, is both patient-centered and conducive to self-quarantine, and it protects patients, clinicians, and the community from exposure. It can allow physicians and patients to communicate 24/7, using smartphones or webcam-enabled computers. …
… Before the Covid-19 outbreak, many EDs modified the “provider-in-triage model” (rapid initial evaluation and testing) by allowing a remote provider to perform intake. Aurora Health, for example, partnered with a commercial telemedicine vendor, and others have developed their own software for this purpose. …
Electronic intensive care unit (e-ICU) monitoring programs, which allow nurses and physicians to remotely monitor the status of 60 to 100 patients in ICUs in multiple hospitals — such as services offered by Mercy Virtual Care Center, Sutter Health, and Sentara Healthcare — are ideal for monitoring sicker patients. …
… Houston’s Project ETHAN (Emergency Telehealth and Navigation) has used telemedical oversight by physicians to augment care offered in person by 911 responders, reducing the need for transportation to the ED.4 In the face of Covid-19, Avera Health is preparing to send mobile home health care units directly to patients …
Much medical decision making is cognitive, and telemedicine can provide rapid access to subspecialists who aren’t immediately available in person. This approach has been explored most fully in the context of stroke, for which systems such as Jefferson Health, Cleveland Clinic, and the University of Pittsburgh provide virtual emergency neurologic care at large numbers of hospitals. The Mount Sinai system …

This is supposed to be telemedicine’s time to shine. Why are doctors abandoning it? (06/25/2020) | @statnews
… The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization have urged physicians and other health care providers to use telemedicine, and both the federal government and private health plans have implemented numerous temporary regulatory and payment changes to facilitate its use. …
… Not surprisingly, bigger organizations with dedicated information technology, procurement, and implementation teams were able to do it more successfully. …
… there is also uncertainty in other aspects of telemedicine. They are confused by state Medicaid programs’ coverage of telemedicine or frustrated by the low payment. …

What is telemedicine and how do you apply it? (w Videos; 06/26/2020) | @JotForm
… In 2018 and 2019, online searches for telemedicine increased nearly 25 percent. … In a March 2020 survey, 41 percent of healthcare providers said that they were using telemedicine technology, an increase from 22 percent in 2018.

Telemedicine is booming
The market for telemedicine services is expected to more than double by 2025, up to $55.6 billion from $25.4 billion in 2020. But given the explosion in demand due to the coronavirus pandemic, with some telemedicine companies seeing a 50 percent increase in visit volumes, that could be a low figure. …
… A staggering 90 percent of the $3.5 trillion spent annually on healthcare in the U.S. is to care for people with chronic conditions. Telemedicine can reduce those costs while still providing patients with the care they need. …

In the time of coronavirus, telemedicine brings physicians where they’re needed most – Expert Opinion (04/10/2020) | Frederick Hitti @PhillyInquirer
… The system’s most obvious use is permitting physicians who are unable to physically come to the hospital – perhaps because they are under quarantine – to remotely care for patients. This telemedicine system is also a boon for physicians physically present at the hospital. There is a severe shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gowns and masks, so the eICU system could be used to care for patients without entering the room, reducing the amount of PPE used. Furthermore, the computer system monitors vital signs and alerts physicians if a patient’s condition deteriorates. The eICU system and other telemedicine systems are also enabling critical care and emergency department doctors to remotely consult doctors in other specialties, providing the best multidisciplinary care. …
