eHealth Virtual VisitExpand access to care, for your patients and physicians

The ability of health systems to engage virtually with patients, assess their needs and direct them towards treatment and care is not new, but it has been slow to gain traction. COVID-19 appears to have changed that. The pandemic has led to such profound fears about infection that many patients – most importantly ones with serious health concerns – are staying away from emergency departments and other healthcare locations. Patients are increasingly approaching healthcare as ‘consumers’ and demanding the same fast, easy and affordable care services. Patients are seeking alternative ways to receive care. The fast adoption and increasing demand lead healthcare providers to look for convenient ways to expand access to care. With virtual visits, the clinicians will be able to engage with patients at every major touchpoint of their healthcare journey. 

“In alliance with Siemens Healthineers, we made wide variety of specialists available to our entire network, eHealth Virtual Visit helps us to bring best care to the under-served regions where there is a lack of specialists.”

Gonzalo Grebe Noguera, CEO, Clinica Andes Salud, Chile

Enabling new ways to deliver care

  • Massive increase in number of outpatient patient visits lead to call for additional physical and human capital and drastic overuse of waiting rooms5
  • Growing demand for specialty care in underserved areas force healthcare providers to find alternative ways to expand access to care to stay ahead of competition6
  • Strong need to reduce the barriers to access care that was caused by long commutes, difficulty getting timely appointments and slow, lengthy visit process.7
