Research by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) shows patients want the convenience of virtual visits.
Let’s make healthcare as safe and convenient as online banking. The critical barrier to quality care is access to the right provider at the right time. The way we deliver healthcare has to change. With telehealth distance does not matter. With the touch of a button, you can deliver care at a critical moment. Amwell asked us to put a video server on wheels. They asked for a freestanding, technology platform that could deliver human connection. There is no substitute for the warmth of a smile.
Telehealth works. Telehealth produces reduced length of stay, fewer ER visits and shorter time-to-needle cycles for stroke victims. Patients prefer it. The impact of this design is the one connection that saved a life.
