Telehealth for Families: The Impact of the Pandemic Experience on Parents and Pediatric Care

Telehealth has emerged as an unexpected bright spot in a stressful and challenging time for busy families. Many parents discovered during the pandemic that well-child video visits and other telehealth services actually made it easier and faster to access timely pediatric care — especially if they lacked transportation or experienced barriers to seeking in-person care.

A new survey from Nemours Children’s Health System and Amwell shows how that experience has shaped families’ attitudes and behaviors regarding the role of telehealth in pediatric care.

In this webinar, experts from Nemours and Amwell will break down the survey findings and discuss the implications for the patient experience and clinical care, including:

  • Virtual care accessed most often by families
  • The impact of telehealth on parental healthcare responsibilities and family dynamics
  • Telehealth’s role in addressing health disparities and social determinants of health
  • How providers can help improve access to telehealth for patients and families
