Do you think telehealth conference calls are here to stay?
I’m currently coordinating a telehealth conference via Zoom with my specialists in Boston due to the health issues I mentioned earlier in the week. And doing so has got me thinking about the countless appointments I’ve had in my lifetime that could have simply taken place by a phone call. All the hours I spent in city traffic for 10-minute appointments, the physical drain being out all day has on my body, feeling as though I could have used my time more wisely, etc etc…
Do you think telehealth conferencing is here to stay even after the pandemic is gone? Unless a person needs an actual physical exam, I think it makes so much more sense for doctors AND their patients. When it comes to this particular new normal, I hope it’s here to stay.
