The efficiency of virtual care
Updated: Aug 9, 2020
Virtual care is here to stay. A recent study from a pediatric orthopaedic group in cleveland performed almost 500 virtual visits in a group of patients with spinal deformity. They demonstrated very high satisfaction scores for both the surgeons and patients. Approximately 80% of these visits were conducted over mobile devices. Additionally, waiting room times were substantially less for virtual visits than in office follow ups (13 vs 41min)!
