Medicine Grand Rounds - Implementing Telemedicine in a Chronic Care Model

Dartmouth College via Independent


Dartmouth Health Continuing Education for Professionals Home, Medicine Grand Rounds - Implementing Telemedicine in a Chronic Care Model, 5/29/2020 8:00:00 AM - 5/29/2023 9:00:00 AM, Dr. Shah reminds us that telemedicine has been utilized for over fifty years in places such as jails and nursing homes, and explores why it has not been more widely adopted as a tool for patient care. He defines common terminology (sites, fees, laws) and explains why it can be difficult to set up a workable platform. In his Gastroenterology Motility practice, Dr. Shah demonstrates improved access and decreased “time to test”, both of which are positives for patients. He also discussed the difficulty with broadband coverage, reimbursement and decreased satisfaction with care decisions. He emphasizes the need for team engagement and exploring in-home devices for predicting a successful telemedicine practice.
