The Coming Age of Telehealth – Science-Based Medicine

Telehealth is finally here. We should keep it.

Steven Novella on July 1, 2020

I am working from home this morning. As a physician I thought it would be a long time before that was possible, if ever during my career. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and literally overnight telehealth was suddenly not only possible but happening. This is a reflection of the fact that the technology was already here, but there were purely bureaucratic obstacles that could just be wiped away if the will was there. At my institution, within a couple of weeks we were collectively seeing 3,000 telehealth visits per day.
