In a recent survey of 1200 US adults, more than 2 in 3 respondents said they would support an expansion of asynchronous telehealth-based treatment options as demand for mental health services continues to climb.
The survey, which sought opinions on accessing healthcare and how care can be improved, was conducted in February and produced by telehealth company Hims & Hers in collaboration with the polling firm Public Opinion Strategies.
Asynchronous telehealth is defined as communication between patients and providers that does not take place simultaneously. Patient information is sent and then stored until providers have an opportunity to review and respond. The arrangement has proven beneficial for both bandwidth-challenged providers and patients, who can engage as their respective schedules allow.
