In the midst of the COVID-19Â lockdown, social distancing guidelines and limited access to adequate healthcare are just one of the problems patients are facing right now. In response, the government addressed this issue by expanding access to telemedicine. But what is telemedicine and why is it stepping up into the spotlight during this pandemic?Â
How Telemedicine Affects our Healthcare Workers During COVID-19?
- Telemedicine allows physicians and other healthcare workers to provide care to patients remotely, through video chats or videoconferencing.
- Telemedicine is effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
- It allows healthcare workers who are in quarantine (with little to no symptoms) to help the overwhelmed healthcare workforce.
- It has the added benefits of promoting social distancing we are enforcing at this time of pandemic.
The high demand for patients seeking consultation via telemedicine is increasing. Especially now that the US tops the world in COVID-19 cases.
But how will physicians be able to meet the demand for increased patient volume? While completing the various clerical tasks including EHR documentation at the same time?
