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.
