Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Impact on Telemedicine, a Physician Perspective

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Impact on Telemedicine, a Physician Perspective

Summary

Telemedicine is the use of electronic communication for the delivery of remote clinical care. It has been recognized as a critical strategy during the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic to limit the risk of person-to-person transmission of the virus as social distancing has become the norm. It is widely anticipated that COVID-19 may be the tipping point for telemedicine as the full potential of the technology is increasingly realized by patients, healthcare systems, and payers. As a result of the pandemic, regulations and policies governing reimbursement and use of telemedicine have changed significantly, leading to expanded access and an unprecedented demand for these services. This case study assesses physician perceptions on telemedicine usage before and during the COVID-19 outbreak in the US, 5EU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK), and Japan, as well as expected use of telemedicine post-COVID-19. The case study combines information obtained from secondary sources and primary research with specialists and physicians from different therapy areas (oncology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, cardiology, and infectious disease).

Key Highlights

- The adoption of telemedicine had been increasing before the COVID-19 crisis, but the uptake was still low: Physicians from the European Union (EU) were leading users of telemedicine solutions pre-COVID-19 (72%), which can be attributed to the EU's attempts to enhance the digitization of its healthcare sectors from 2018. In line with the regulatory landscape, Japanese respondents reported the lowest levels of telemedicine usage pre-COVID-19 (42%). Until 2015, the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) had restricted the use of telemedicine solutions except for patients with chronic diseases in remote areas in the country.
- Use of telemedicine gained momentum during the COVID-19 pandemic when social distancing became the norm: Telemedicine has been recognized as a critical strategy during the COVID-19 emergency to limit the risk of person-to-person transmission, in turn triggering policymakers in many countries to relax regulations to facilitate widespread usage and adoption of telemedicine. Despite easing of restrictions in Japan, over 50% of respondents reported their use of telemedicine had remained unchanged as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, whereas in the US and EU, over 75% of respondents increased use of the technology.
- Telemedicine has the potential to significantly improve delivery of healthcare post-COVID-19: Telemedicine has a potential to address ongoing issues faced by healthcare systems worldwide. These include workforce shortages, an aging society, accessing affordable care, and increased healthcare spending. While only 47% of US physicians were using telemedicine pre-COVID-19, 76% were positive that their usage would continue after the crisis ended. This may suggest that at the time of survey fielding, physicians were optimistic about temporary telemedicine flexibilities being made permanent in the US.
