Telehealth is a growing alternate/adjunctive setting for health care delivery and with its rapid growth it is important to make sure telehealth is not only convenient but is meeting the needs of the patients. The question PICOT presented is: in geriatric patients (P), what is the effect of telehealth (I) compared to face-to-face clinic visits (C) on efficacy and satisfaction in patient care (O)? Based on the available research, there is a moderate to high level of evidence to support the use of telemedicine in the primary care setting and can be especially useful in settings where there is an established relationship between the patient and provider. The purpose of the DNP quality improvement project was to evaluate the use of telehealth medicine in the geriatric population. Patients and their caregivers found the visits to be easily conducted via telehealth; however, this population value the ability to physicallly interact with their provider as with traditional visits. The caregivers of the patients gave much higher scores because the telehealth services were more convenient. While telehealth should not replace all traditional face-to-face in office visits, used as a supplement to traditional care, telehealth could be a great asset.
