Follow-Up Care

Once you have been seen for an acute condition (short duration), such as an infection or injury, one or more follow up visits might be appropriate to ensure that you are healing as expected over time. Follow-up visits give the opportunity to report your progress and the provider a chance to provide additional recommendations. For many conditions, these visits can be conducted virtually. Doing so increases the likelihood that the follow up will happen as planned.

Hospital Discharge / ER Follow-Up

Post-hospital follow-up visit presents an ideal opportunity for the primary care physician to prepare the patient and family caregiver for self-care activities and to head off situations that could lead to readmission

Sharing Test Results 

Rather than scheduling a visit to share test results or losing the personal touch by doing it over the phone, doctors who use telehealth technology are able to communicate results and recommendations effectively remotely.

Medication Management

Many patients are on medicine, like anti-depressants and blood thinners, that require close monitoring and frequent adjustment. No physical exam is usually necessary, making a video visit using telemedicine technology ideal.

Mental Health

Counseling services alongside the primary care team - seamless integration for the mind and body.

Flu, Cold, Covid

Instead of having a highly contagious patient in your waiting room, schedule a video visit to do an initial consult to determine if they need a physical exam or other form of medical care. In most cases, flu, cold, and allergy appointments can be handled over video–including prescribing follow-up care.

Allergy

Allergies are common and sometimes do not require a physical office exam to proceed with a treatment plan.

Lifestyle Coaching

Providers who are working with patients trying to lose weight or quit smoking find telemedicine to be a useful tool.  They are able to have frequent touchpoints with patients to provide support and guidance without filling up the waiting room or risking no-shows or cancellations.

What Services Can Be Provided Via Telehealth?

“Almost anything can be conducted” via a virtual visit, England says.

But certain types of visits may be more amenable to a telehealth model, says Dr. David R. Stukus, associate professor of pediatrics in the division of allergy and immunology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. “Visits that don’t rely heavily on detailed physical exams or in-office diagnostic testing are optimal for telemedicine. This includes behavioral health, follow-up visits for many chronic medical conditions and new patient visits where a detailed clinical history can provide sufficient information to offer an informed diagnosis and treatment plan.”

Chiarelli adds that “the history the patient provides is always one of the most important pieces of a medical visit. With telemedicine, we can still gather all of the history and many important pieces of the examination.” Labs, studies, a referral to a specialist or a face-to-face visit may still be necessary later, but that can come after the remote gathering of that important medical history.

Some situations where telehealth can be especially useful include:

  • Follow-up appointments. Primary care and urgent care where the provider is following up a previous visit or checking in with the patient to determine whether more direct care is necessary. If medications are needed, the prescriber may be able to send a prescription directly to your pharmacy.

  • Medication management. For people with chronic conditions that require prescription medication, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, a routine check-in is often necessary.

  • Behavioral health services. Mental health services and counseling are usually talk-based and typically require no hands-on care from the provider, making these services especially well-suited to remote delivery.

  • Health screening. In the current crisis, a virtual doctor’s visit is a smart way to reduce the potential for transmission of infection. Many doctors and health care centers are offering remote screening options for COVID-19, says Dr. Joseph C. Kvedar, vice president of connected health at Partners HealthCare and a professor of dermatology at Harvard Medical School. “Checking if someone needs the test and following people who are quarantining with mild symptoms is mostly about asking questions,” which lends itself well to a telehealth approach, he says. Other health screenings, such as hearing tests for kids and cognitive testing in older adults, may also be offered remotely.
