Asynchronous Video Humanizes EHealth

Technology has always revolutionized healthcare, and the recent democratization of video means eHealth is a viable avenue for any hospital or physician practice.

For reasons ranging from convenience and accessibility to cost-efficiency and compassionate care, telehealth and telemedicine are the future of streamlined healthcare visits. However, there are downfalls to various forms of communication in eHealth.

Phone calls, scheduled or not, put patients on the spot and require them to fit an obtrusive block of time into their days. Video meeting platforms bring some humanity into the appointment, allowing face-to-face connection – but there’s still the issue of inconveniently interrupting the middle of the patient’s busy day. Email and written correspondences provide patients with the time they need to think through their options and respond, but it’s known that reading alone isn’t the best way to retain important information. 

eHealth Future

So what’s the perfect way to conduct eHealth? Asynchronous video combines the best parts of the previously mentioned communication methods, creating a compassionate eHealth practice that benefits patients and improves the accessibility of healthcare.

Benefits of eHealth

eHealth offers advantages for both patients and healthcare providers.

  • Convenience: Remote consultations mean no more long waits in crowded waiting rooms of possibly contagious patients. Moreover, eHealth provides patients with the time to make informed decisions, empowering them to take charge of their health.
  • Accessibility: Rural areas are historically underserved in healthcare, but eHealth allows even these areas to receive regular, quality care.
  • Compassion: Most importantly, eHealth fosters a sense of compassion and support, especially for those with chronic illnesses or mobility issues that make it challenging to visit a healthcare facility regularly.

Benefits of Asynchronous Video for eHealth

Video is a powerful tool for building personal connections and fostering trust between patients and healthcare providers.

  • Human Connection: Personalized video messages can make patients feel more connected and involved in their healthcare process, leading to better engagement and outcomes. Unlike text-based communication or phone calls, video enables individuals to see and hear their physicians, providing emotional support to patients who may feel isolated or anxious about their health.
  • Enhanced Understanding: Visual explanations through video can help patients better understand their health conditions and treatments, improving compliance and satisfaction. Furthermore, patients can refer back to videos for information, ensuring that advice and instructions are understood and followed correctly over time.
  • Overall Efficiency: With asynchronous video, healthcare facilities can reach a larger number of patients without additional strain on resources or personnel. It reduces the need for back-and-forth communication and scheduling, making the healthcare process more efficient for both patients and providers. By minimizing the need for in-person visits, asynchronous video can lower expenses and make it easier to fit healthcare into patients’ busy lives.
