Nursing Students Help Reduce ‘Asthma Van’ No-Shows using Telehealth

A study in the Journal of Pediatric Nursing’s April 2021 edition contains an article examining the impact of telehealth on no-show rates for a pediatric asthma mobile van. The researchers implemented an option for visits where parents could attend their child’s appointments while the parents were off-site. Using this method, they found that no-show rates dropped from 36% to 8 – 18% per month over 10 months. The researchers concluded the model “can be another approach toward increasing pediatric healthcare access.”
