GPs issue warning as London practices lose young patients to GP at Hand

Comment

the intersting thing is what happens to patients who have easier access. A US paper on Virtual/ Remote care suggests that improved access increases demand! P24 Evidence of increased utilization over time: As shown on the right, members who have had access to Teladoc for longer periods of time use the solution more frequently than those who recently joined: the utilization rate for users onboarded in 2013/2014 is nearly twice as high as for the recently onboarded 2016 cohort. This virtual care model, therefore, is not just a “flash-in-the-pan” offering but a product that gains momentum over time. This is the sting in the tail for funders of Babylon etc!! Access breeds Excess!! https://www.ziegler.com/newsroom/2018/04/deconstructing-the-telehealth-industry-part-ii-improving-the-access-points-of-healthcare-delivery/
