Assessing Patient Perceptions of Telehealth

The pandemic has reinforced digital behaviours and altered the experience of care itself. In the early days, the unknown dangers of the virus drove many people to seek out and use telehealth. Digital convenience not only drives trust and loyalty pre-and post-visit, but patients are increasingly looking for care that meets them where they are. 

Collecting and analysing data on how well patients’ needs are being met through this growing media is critical for management and learning. Adding the analyses of telehealth to existing patient experience assessments will identify additional patterns to support the identification of insights and best practices. 

You are invited to participate

Insync will be undertaking a national research project to assess and profile the primary care industry’s response to delivering compassionate, connected care to patients through telehealth practices.

Participation in this project will allow individual primary care practices to understand and respond in real-time to their patients’ attitudes and perceptions of telehealth and benchmark their performance compared to peer organisations nationally.

The survey for the study will be a customised version of Insync healthcare partner Press Ganey’s validated telehealth survey solution used by 1,000s of practices globally. The survey contains 12 rating items, a set of background and demographic items and 3 opportunities for qualitative feedback.

Post-survey we will provide genuine insights into how to engage telehealth patients, (both at an individual practice level and for the PHN region), through our advanced analytics and post improvement support models.
