Stay in control, test your patients via Telehealth during lockdowns
The ability to provide ADHD care out of the clinic puts you and your patients back in control. QbTest Telehealth*, powered by QbCheck, helps you to provide high quality ADHD care to all patients in clinic or via Telehealth utilizing the objective data from our market leading tests.
A recent US study showed that 95% of patients completed the test successfully at home . Leading US clinics were able to serve their ADHD patients by utilizing QbCheck via telehealth during the Coronavirus lockdown as part of a feasibility initiative.
As a result of COVID-19, patients have heightened fear and increased stress which can keep them from seeking medical care. 73% of patients with ADHD recently surveyed (1,252) are feeling anxious and worried . This emphasizes the importance of increasing access to care via telehealth:
Deliver high quality ADHD care to all patients in clinic or via Telehealth
Telehealth is here to stay. Patients demand greater flexibility:
- 11% of patients made use of telehealth in 2019
- 46% of patients made use of telehealth by May 2020
- 76% are likely to seek telehealth moving forward 
Regardless of the COVID pandemic, we’ve known for a long time now that patients demand more flexibility for appointments and that includes assessments. For our clinic, the pandemic accelerated our natural course and we’ve just had to pivot / shift our focus to prioritising our telehealth and digital services.
The addition of QbTest telehealth service has proven a lifeline for ADHD assessments. Instead of navigating the unpredictable nature of lockdown measures and we can’t do, we’ve instead concentrated on what we can do. During lockdown we were a 100% telehealth clinic and I would say that patients have embraced this too, not just because they have to. A few ADHD patients have commented that they like the fact that they can fit in the assessment around their schedule and the convenience of being able to do it at home or wherever is more practical for them to do it.
