Project: Enhancing patient access and outcomes through modernization of insured physician services, with a focus on technology
For his CQIP project, Dr. Stoll worked with Dr. Greeta Achyuthan to see how the patient experience could be improved by using technology that most people already use every day. Instead of patients travelling between one and three hours for an in-person appointment, Dr. Stoll did some visits remotely by using Facetime and Google Duo. In a retrospective chart review of 20 clinic days with about 500 patients, he concluded that more than a third of those visits could have been done remotely.
