Telehealth



  • Huge asset for society in general. Have you tried telehealth?
    From accessing drug store clinic apps to nurse and/or physician apps to ask Health questions prior to going to the emergency room/department?
    Actually participating in a Dr appt online?
    Any other online, mobile telehealth experiences?



  • I was on a committee for a telehealth initiative once. One of he challenges was getting a critical mass of physicians who really wanted to do it. There are various reasons for this, including such things as liability, and a sense it’s average, cookbook care, but I think the real issue is the very best doctors usually love the personal interaction with people, the humanity or “art” of medicine. These folks for the most part aren’t keen on telemedicine.
