For years, the health system has grappled with a daunting challenge: how to effectively identify, engage
MINNEAPOLIS, August 3, 2020 — New research has shed light on a longstanding healthcare system challenge that affects more than 1 in 3 Americans: Health outcomes are not improving for those with complex, chronic health concerns, even though they see their doctor frequently and take multiple medications.
The way that healthcare is accessed and delivered is in the spotlight. Thanks to technology -- and our recent, collective experiences with stay-at-home orders and social distancing-- healthcare as we know it now extends far beyond the walls of a doctor’s office or hospital. As a nation, stresses on our healthcare system have required us to take a critical eye to how people receive the care they need. But for some people, improving their health isn’t necessarily a question of access.
At the core of healthcare is human connection. Whether in-person or virtual, mental or physical, chronic or urgent, good health guidance is facilitated by the trust and personal attention between patient and provider. And although it might have seemed counterintuitive just a few months ago, telehealth is a great enabler of this one-to-one connection – if we use it wisely.
