Project: Enhancing patient access and outcomes through modernization of insured physician services with a focus on technology
For her CQIP project, Dr. Achyuthan looked at how access to care could be enhanced by using technology to modernize physician services. The project, which was done in partnership with Dr. Michael Stoll, looked at how apps – Facetime, Google Duo and REACTS – could be used instead of some in-office physician-patient visits. A retroactive review of appointments over an eight-week period showed that 34% of office visits could have been done without patients coming into the office.
