      Background

      A clinical consultation is usually physician led and traditionally carried out in a direct person-person interaction in an outpatient clinic. The alternative is replacing it through electronic means via telehealth. This has already been exploited as a phone consultation and is gaining momentum as a video based consultation although it has not been widely introduced into oncology.

      Method

      The aim was to ascertain the acceptance of the video consulting technology in real clinical settings and the effectiveness of video consultation in replacing conventional consultation.

      Eligible patients who attended a pre-existing nurse led clinic completed a checklist to ensure access to appropriate IT equipment. Those able to participate were asked to replace two nurse led appointments with nurse led teleheath appointments using iKonsult video consultation platform. After each consultation a satisfaction questionnaire was completed.

      Result

      Patients were recruited from a protocolised nurse led clinic for mutation driven NSCLC on oral tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI). 42 patients were approached over a three month period; only 6 agreed and were followed up via the telehealth platform. 4 patients considered it as a possibility, 4 did not feel confident and 3 did not have the correct equipment. The remaining patients cited numerous reasons for not taking up this service.

      In the satisfaction analysis of 17 initial telemedicine consultations 5/6 patients (81%) were very satisfied with telemedicine follow up. 4 patients (66%) found the platform extremely easy and 2 (34%) easy to use.

      Conclusion

      On treatment monitoring of oral TKI therapy could be effectively carried out using video consultation platform reducing the number of hospital visits. The consultations provided necessary information and allowed for adequate clinical assessment. However the initial take up rate is low mostly due to patient reluctance rather than unavailable technology. The overall feedback from participants was very positive and accepting of the service. The iKonsult video consultation is being introduced into other oncology settings.
