The proportion of the public that is dissatisfied in general with their care is relatively low at 19%; but rises to 39% when only the best-performing physicians are considered.

Unverified Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving virtual visit?

"Results from a recent paper of this study do not support the idea that patients' perception of clinical trial outcome is more favourable when they receive an online patient visit instead of a telephone interview. The main limitation of this study is that there were few significant differences between the two clinical study groups with respect to some secondary measures. Further randomized controlled trials are needed to test the effectiveness of the practice of delivering medication via the internet to patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the common side effects of virtual visit?

"The authors found that the most common side effects as listed by the participants in the study were fatigue, tiredness, and dizziness. Data from a recent study show that patients undergoing the virtual visit experience less severe and less common side effects than those who visit the emergency center in-person. Virtual health care may be safe and efficient in terms of patient care. However, it is imperative that this practice be adequately validated in the health care setting so that patients and physicians can be informed of its limitations." - Anonymous Online Contributor
