TOPIC:

Telehealth: From Bogeyman to Clinical Practice

Posted by Valaree DonFrancesco

On today’s show, our time’s enduring topic — No, not COVID, but it does make a distinct and necessary cameo on the show — No, we’re talking about Telehealth. Telemedicine. Tele–all the things. Perhaps even the telephone when required. Joining us are Dr. Natasha Shur, Medical Geneticist, and Monisha Kisling, a genetic counselor both from Children’s National in Washington DC. Telehealth has been around for a long time, but its adoption akin to no one trusting eBay and Amazon in the 1990s with the safety and security of using your credit cards online. My oh my how times have changed. And the same is true for what we discuss in this episode. Has COVID created a forced adoption? Yes. Are more people realizing how nice it is — when relevant — to NOT have to sit in a waiting room for hours? Yes. Is Telehealth perfect and here to stay? Well, it may not be perfect — perhaps a work in progress that shows real signs of being a real option — but, yes, Telehealth is here to stay.
