The recently published “Virtual Doctor Visit Report”, conducted by Prophis eResearch on 1600 online US adults, proves that patients perceive online consultation as being positive, and even more if one is consultated by a personally known physician.
How should GP practices prepare themselves for this upcoming reality? Should Instant Messaging services and virtual reality consultations be as common as a telephone consultation?
In my humble opinion, yes they should.
