Virtual Visits in Healthcare: The Past, Present, and Future
Acute care is in the midst of a crisis. The combination of a depleted workforce that is projected to further shrink, rising patient acuity, and shrinking hospital margins has led to frustration and burnout among nursing staff and left us a long way from the goals of the quadruple aim.
Thankfully, a new class of nurses is rising to meet this crisis, merging digital technology with virtual nursing and helping to fundamentally rethink existing care models. This process is still underway, but the results are already promising: decreasing the average length of stay, improving patient outcomes, reducing readmissions, and improving both the retention and satisfaction of nursing staff.
