Abstract

FUENZALIDA C, Javiera et al. Evaluation of a remote control model for pregnant and post-partum patients with SARS-CoV-2infection. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2020, vol.85, suppl.1, pp.S35-S49. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262020000700007.

Introduction:

Given the scenario of obstetric patients diagnosed with the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the need for proper follow-up both obstetric and of the infection, during the period of home isolation, is essential. A remote monitoring program was developed by the Maternal Fetal Medicine Unit (MFM) of our center from the diagnosis of the infection until medical discharge according to the current criteria of the Ministry of Health (MINSAL).

Objective:

To assess patient satisfaction of remote monitoring of pregnant and postpartum patients diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Methods:

This is a descriptive-survey research. We performed a patient satisfaction survey through an online platform to pregnant and postpartum patients with remote monitoring for SARS-CoV-2 infection in our center. The survey was anonymous and voluntary. The instrument for this purpose was the Spanish adapted version of “Telehealth Usability Questionnaire” (TUQ) that has been previously validated.

Results:

The survey was answered by 94,5% of the patients. The results show that 86% of the patients rated the virtual control as “Very Good” or “Good”; 91% did not experienced technical problems. 14% of the patients prefer virtual control, 26% prefer face-to-face control and 60% both virtual and face-to-face control. 80% fulfilled all their needs with virtual control.

Conclusions:

In the context of pandemic and SARS-CoV-2 infection, remote monitoring has been positively evaluated with acceptable levels of patient's satisfaction.
