Technology and Primary Care
By taking advantage of new advances in technology, physicians at Partners HealthCare affiliated practices are able to keep patient satisfaction high and reduce patient time spent in the office. The practice of "virtual medicine" is becoming more common as a tool to care for patients.
Improving how patients experience the health care system means that patients will be more satisfied with their care. Partners is pleased to provide an increasing number of options for patients to communicate with their physicians.
In this video, Ronald Dixon, MD, Director of the Virtual Practice Project at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Associate Medical Director at MGH Beacon Hill, explains how he uses virtual medicine with his patients.
