Patients who receive integrated virtual care within a health system experience more time with clinicians, lower prescription rates and better continuity of care than those who receive care from commercial telemedicine providers, according to new data released today by Carena.
Depicted in an infographic, “3 Ways Integrated Virtual Clinics are Improving Care Quality,” the data demonstrates that integrated virtual clinics minimize care fragmentation and meet the highest quality benchmarks for delivering care.
“Virtual care is a natural use of technology to extend the availability of care from health systems that patients know and trust. It can meet the needs of patients on high deductible plans and it can help systems prepare for new reimbursement models,” said Ralph Derrickson, president and CEO of Carena, Inc. “The data shows, virtual care, when offered as part of an integrated delivery system, can improve quality and reduce fragmentation.”
