Effective Telehealth Requires New Skills
Patient engagement is the foundation of establishing a successful Therapeutic Alliance. Review the science and learn the essential skills to connect with patients for an effective telehealth encounter.
Be with your patients at a time when they may need you most.
Physical distancing (social distancing) has created a significant barrier in the way treat our patients. Patients who have relied upon us for expert guidance toward their goals are now struggling to get the care they need.
Telehealth is rapidly expanding as an option to connect therapists to their patients. Although there are many benefits to an E-Visit, it is not the same as an in-clinic visit.
In the clinic we serve our patients with a "healing experience" that includes all of the interactions associated with the clinic: front desk people, facility "energy", other patients, and without these interaction, the E-Visit if more focused with more attention on communication. Without knowing what is important to the patient and how best to communicate over video, there is a chance you will not connect in a way that creates a great outcome.

Can you establish a therapeutic alliance over telehealth?
For a successful outcome, You must!
At the core of a successful treatment outcome is the Therapeutic Alliance. This alliance is the foundation of Relationship-Centered CareTM. Up to 60% of the treatment effect can be attributed to this alliance. If this alliance is not established, the chances your patient does not complete a plan of care increases.
The skills we use to engage patients in the clinic are similar but their application is much different in a telehealth experience. The skills can be applied in a new way to ensure you establish a therapeutic alliance.
Don't miss the connection!
How you approach the E-visit will determine your success.
- What is your approach?
- How is it different than in the clinic?
- How is it the same?
- What does the patient need?
- What are correct the steps?
Communication skills more than ever.
Yes, they are also important in the clinic, but a successful E-Visit is first and foremost about successful communication. During an E-Visit you don't have all of the social signals that let you make assumptions. You must use precision language to get the results you want.
