Antibiotic Prescribing Practices: Is There a Difference Between Patients Seen by Telemedicine Versus Those Seen In-Person?

Telemed J E Health 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

2 Department of Emergency Medicine, Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York, New York.

Background: Direct-to-consumer telemedicine is becoming part of mainstream medicine, but questions exist regarding the quality of care provided. We assessed antibiotic stewardship, one measure of quality, by comparing antibiotic prescription rates for acute respiratory infections (ARIs) between patients seen by telemedicine and patients seen in-person in two urban emergency departments (EDs).

Methods: In two urban EDs where low-acuity patients in the ED have the option of being seen by telemedicine rather than in-person, we analyzed telemedicine and in-person visits of patients ≥18 years who received ARI diagnoses between July 2016 and September 2017. Read More

Is the Internet Different from Traditional Mass Media in Promoting Patient Compliance with Mature Treatments?

Telemed J E Health 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

3 Department of Mechanical Engineering, School of Mechanical, Electronic and Control Engineering, Beijing Jiaotong University, Beijing, People's Republic of China.

Background: Through mass media, some patients tend to seek mature treatment-related health information whereas some prefer information related to emerging treatments, which may influence patient compliance, specifically, following the medical diagnoses and treatment regimens. Given that traditional mass media (TMM) and the internet (INT) may promote the publication of different treatment-related information, this study aims to identify the difference between TMM and the INT in influencing patient compliance with mature treatments (PCMTs).

Materials And Methods: Our subjects were Chinese who had received therapies within a month and had experience of seeking health information through mass media. Read More

The Accuracy of Large Vessel Occlusion Recognition Scales in Telestroke Setting.

Telemed J E Health 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

1 Department of Neurology and Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina.

Introduction: A significant proportion of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients who are evaluated through telestroke consultation are transferred to thrombectomy-capable stroke centers (TSCs) for concern of large vessel occlusion (LVO). Patient triage selection is commonly based on the clinical suspicion of LVO, which lacks specificity and could result in unnecessary transfers. In this study, we aimed to assess the accuracy of the most commonly used LVO recognition scales in telestroke setting. Read More

Telemed J E Health 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

3 Union Hospital, Richard Lugar Center for Rural Health, Terre Haute, Indiana.

Background: Telehealth has been proposed as an important care delivery strategy to increase access to behavioral health care, especially in rural and medically-underserved settings where mental health care provider shortage areas predominate, to speed access to behavioral health care, and reduce health disparities.

Introduction: This study was conducted to determine the effects of telehealth-based care delivery on clinical, temporal, and cost outcomes for behavioral health patients in rural emergency departments (EDs) of four Midwestern critical access hospitals (CAHs).

Materials And Methods: Observational matched cohort study of adult (age ≥18 years) behavioral health patients treated in participating CAH EDs from 2015 to 2017 (N = 287). Read More
