COVID-19: How Are You Adapting to the Changing Healthcare Landscape?

We’re facing a global healthcare crisis unlike any in our recent history. Within the span of a few short weeks, we have seen our lives and medical practices drastically change. It is our hope that we come out of this pandemic stronger than before, with a renewed sense of purpose, and a new set of tools we’ll use to better connect with and treat our patients.

As clinicians, we must now decide how we want to respond to all of the challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has brought us. This includes adjusting the way we communicate with patients, adopting rapidly changing telehealth guidelines, and incorporating new technologies into our daily medical practice. This shift in how healthcare is delivered has the potential to leave us feeling one of three ways: disrupted, stable, or revitalized.

Disruption

A feeling of fear or disruption is a natural first response to this rapidly evolving crisis. While it’s natural to have fears (How many people will get sick? How long will this go on? How long can my practice survive in this sudden telehealth environment?), some people stay rooted in this state of disruption, unable to adapt to the changing landscape.

Stabilization

People in this category have embraced their emotions and accepted the fact that COVID-19 has severely disrupted the way healthcare is delivered during this pandemic. They acknowledge that we are all going through the same experience and are coping the best we can. They are also beginning to consider how they can play a role in improving the environment for themselves and those around them.

Revitalization

This is what we are all aiming for! In this stage, we are focused on using our skillsets to help others, adapt to the evolving landscape of telehealth, and incorporate technology in innovative ways to drive improved care and efficiency. We realize that COVID-19 has changed how medical care is delivered today and, possibly, for many years to come. We are refocusing ourselves and working toward system improvements. 

VisualDx can assist with these changes. VisualDx is used by professionals to enhance and improve the quality of the telehealth visit, regardless of which video platform is used. It is a virtual second opinion, an essential cockpit tool to complement a provider’s efforts to evaluate, diagnose, manage, and modify treatment strategies for their patients.  Whether through your EMR, FaceTime, or another telemedicine software program, VisualDx supports clinicians by providing readily available medical and patient information or images that can be shared with the patient electronically or via screen sharing functions right within your telemedicine platform.
