The Mighty Community: Making A Difference
Providing Patient Perspectives on Telehealth During Covid
The Mighty community helped inform The Covid-19 Healthcare Coalition by providing patient perspectives on their evolving Telehealth experiences and needs. Their input formed the majority of the patient information found in this report, helping decision makers better understand how actual patients experience and want to experience telehealth during Covid.
Some of the findings from the patient surveys include:
Over half said they would have had to delay healthcare without telehealth during Covid and received a medication during their visit
Over 80% were very satisfied with their telehealth care and felt a sense of access and continuity of care
57% needed a follow up and received it via telehealth
85% felt comfortable sharing personal information via telehealth
73% will continue to use telehealth in the future
Assisting Researchers From Leading Institutions With Real World Insights
One of the core aims of The Mighty is to give our members a greater sense of control over their health and one way we've been delighted to offer that is through participation in research projects. We have teamed up with world-class research institutions to enhance and expand understanding of topics ranging from suicidality to fibromyalgia.
As The Mighty's audience continues to grow, we continually gain the fringe benefit of increasing our members' ability to translate their collective experiences into game-changing research.
More than 500 members participated in a study with researchers from Harvard University in a study looking at individuals who experience suicidal thoughts. The study measures the impact of online content on suicidality. Results pending summer of 2022.
