If you're like me you’d rather stay home than travel, especially when traveling requires a lot of preparation and, not to mention, time away from friends and family. Not only that, but traveling is expensive, on average it could cost between $150 and $2,000 per trip. Traveling also increases the likelihood of a fall and contracting COVID, both of which could result in an emergency room visit, and who wants to sit in an emergency room waiting for them to tell you something you already know?
So, why travel to see a clinician, when they can come to you via telehealth? Since the pandemic, there have been numerous studies and patient survey, like this ALSA study, that show seeing your clinician via telehealth can save time, and money, they are also just as effective as an in-person visit. Don’t forget the lost income for your caregiver or the cost of the care.
I know, I am not telling you something you don’t already know, over 60% of individuals with ALS have indicated that through telehealth they are able to improve their quality of life. Together we can make the need for some in-person visits a thing of the past.
