We know that telehealth can be a tremendous opportunity to expand healthcare access for people who might face barriers to medical services. But it also may be replicating the digital divide.In a recent study, researchers examined data from nearly 150,000 unique patients who scheduled telemedicine visits from March 16 to May 11, 2020. They investigated who completed those visits, and how. Two of those researchers, Dr. Lauren Eberly, a fellow in cardiovascular medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and Dr. Srinath Adusumalli, assistant chief medical information officer for connected health and assistant professor of clinical medicine, cardiovascular at Penn Medicine, joined MobiHealthNews Managing Editor Laura Lovett and Healthcare IT News Senior Editor Kat Jercich to discuss their findings and the importance of centering equity in virtual care.Talking points:Structural inequities are pervasive, and the digital divide is realPatients of color have lower rates of access to broadband and digital connectivityIn this study, older patients, Asian patients, Medicaid users and non-English speakers were less likely to complete telehealth visitsIt’s important to meet patients where they’re at and to meet their clinical needsThere are many opportunities for telehealth outside of rural careIt's a matter of population health as well – and we have to get it right sooner rather than laterThis is the chance to rethink strategies to deliver careVendors should incorporate equity into their designLaying a stronger foundation for reimbursement of care —especially payment parity—would be helpful to safeguard careBroadband access will also be keyMore about this episode:Women are less likely to use video for telehealth careStudy: Black patients more likely than white patients to use telehealth because of pandemicTelehealth may worsen digital divide for people with disabilitiesTelehealth's digital divide is real, and members of Congress want to address itHims & Hers, ATA, and 10 others launch Telehealth Equity Coalition
