Telehealth Impact Study
The American Medical Association has been working on a Telehealth Impact Physician survey in collaboration with MITRE, Mayo and others as part of an effort of the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition. See below for the full message:
“You are invited to complete the Telehealth Impact Study Provider Questionnaire by clicking on the link below. The study has been approved by the Mayo Clinic IRB and is part of our efforts in the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition to address the pandemic. Since COVID-19 started, we have experienced a significant shift towards telehealth. The goal of this project is to learn more about your experience with telehealth to identify the challenges and barriers, as well as the benefits.
Building on existing research, your response will help inform additional resources needed across the industry and health care community, provide insights to federal and state policymakers, and identify gaps in current research. Respondent and organization information will remain confidential and will only be reported in aggregate. The findings will be shared and made available to all on the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition website, as well as shared by the various organizations participating in the Coalition Telehealth Workgroup*.
The COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition is focused on understanding your experience of telehealth as an individual physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. Please click here to start the survey https://src.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6KAkyEVfhtGj3vL. The survey is expected to take up to 15-20 minutes and we ask that you complete the survey by August 13th, 2020. Please remember to press submit when you get to the end of the survey.
We want to hear from as many clinicians as possible to inform our work. If you have colleagues who use telehealth, please consider forwarding this invitation to them.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and valuable insights.
