Extending Care benefits patients, especially those in rural areas without easy access to hospital, those with chronic conditions who need ongoing monitoring and coordinated Care and those with disabilities For whom trip to hospital or rehabilitation facility may be unnecessary. In some areas, emergency room visits have decreased by 42 % year over year, in large part due to concerns about COVID-19. 1 But avoiding hospital does not have to mean avoiding Care. Telehealth can proactively monitor and step in to provide timely intervention for those at risk and can do so in a high-quality, cost-effective way, which can result in substantial cost savings. Currently, many health systems struggle to serve aging, chronic and rural patients who may not have convenient access to hospitals. For example, 5 million Veterans live in areas designated as rural by the US Census Bureau during the 2011-2015 period, 4 and as that population continues to age, prevalence of chronic conditions like hypertension and diabetes is projected to rise by 12 % and 8 %, respectively. 5 Difficulty in accessing care is exacerbated during pandemics, when reduced rates of admission for heart attacks, strokes and other emergencies suggest that patients are avoiding necessary care out of fear of going to hospital. 6 by making Care flexible and untethering patients from centralized locations and striving to provide Care nearly anywhere, we can improve the continuity of the Care health system provide. Care can be delivered in lower-cost and lower-risk settings and health systems can improve the consistency of care, focus on preventative care to keep patients healthier outside hospital and, in the event, patients must move between care settings, ensure that they are better served throughout their journey. The demand for extended Care is expected to keep growing, driven by concerns about COVID-19, aging population and rise in chronic conditions that are rapidly transforming preferences For how and where Care should be deliver. Virtual or telehealth visits can solve many of these challenges, and its use has massively accelerated in the wake of COVID-19. Consumer adoption in the US has skyrocketed from 11 % of consumers in 2019 to 46 % today. 7 telehealth solutions extend Care to the home, allowing for remote screening and triage and helping to proactively manage patients in lower-cost settings. Additionally, this technology conserves equipment and hospital space for patients who need IT, limiting the risk of exposure for hospital-base Care teams, limiting potential patient exposure by allowing them to receive Care from the safety of their home and reducing the overall cost of Care, particularly for chronic populations-in some cases, improving costs by 2 % to 3 %. 7 Recently, VA and Philips joined forces to expand the VA tele-critical Care program, up to 100 million investment that could have a tremendous impact on improving Veterans health. 12 Care can also be extended with patient management solutions that guide, track and triage patients through multiple digital channels.
