Over the last few months hospitals have canceled or eliminated elective procedures, and physicians have restricted physical access to their practices. Those trends are accelerating the adoption of telehealth services as providers and patients turn to virtual visits for safety and convenience. Interactive medicine, also known as "live telemedicine", allows patients and physicians to communicate in real-time while also maintaining compliance.
Prior to Covid-19, patients used telehealth to "see any doctor" primarily for urgent care needs. The pandemic expanded the use of telehealth to "see any doctor" for the acute treatment and triage of patients with the coronavirus. but it also prompted a broader adoption of telehealth, allowing patients to "see my doctor" for ongoing care of chronic conditions. This new pattern of digital engagements is likely to continue and to increase the frequency of consultations, deepening the docotr-patient relationship.
Besides why and how of telemedicine, points such as pandemic conditions can be resolved using telemedicine.
Advancements in user-friendly software as well as medical device based hardware could be an important topic of discussion.
