In the realm of managing movement disorders, telehealth has emerged as a crucial resource, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent research indicates that over 60% of individuals living with Parkinson’s disease have embraced virtual visits with their physicians, marking a significant increase from previous usage rates.

Beyond Parkinson’s disease, patients grappling with various movement disorders and neurological conditions have also expressed high satisfaction with telehealth services. A survey conducted by Vanderbilt University Medical Center revealed that over 97% of patients were confident in the telehealthcare they received, underscoring its effectiveness and value.

The convenience and accessibility of telehealth have garnered widespread praise among patients. With nearly half expressing a desire to continue utilizing it post-pandemic. Telehealth visits offer time and cost savings compared to traditional in-person appointments, validating this preference. Eliminating the need for travel and reducing logistical hassles.

While telehealth cannot fully replace in-person visits, it serves as a valuable complement to traditional care. Providing patients with the flexibility to connect with healthcare providers from the comfort of their homes. Telehealth is poised to become an integral component of patient-centered care. Offering a convenient and efficient means of managing movement disorders for the long term.
