Telemedicine Education for Healthcare Professionals
This week Tanya Mack hosted Aneel Irfan, of Telehealth Magazine, to talk about telemedicine education for healthcare professionals. American healthcare is transforming and telemedicine will be a critical part of it going into the future. Research, medical information and consults are now delivered instantly across large geographic distances.
Telemedicine has been transformed from a novelty way to provide patient care to a booming industry. Current healthcare professionals are the 1 st generation of “Digital Natives”, who are well versed in incorporating technology into their daily interactions. They are in a position to apply these advances
into the patient care arena.
However, formal, systematic training will be required to get on pace with telemedicine encounters being “on par” with in-person, traditional patient care. Today, our segment will be exploring the question: “How do we begin training healthcare professionals to maximize the potential of telemedicine?” Listen in as our guest, Aneel Irfan; from the industry’s premier publication,
Telehealth Magazine, discusses his thoughts in this area.
