I practiced Telemedicine with my mother every week when she was alive. We did this on Facetime and it allowed me to catch up with her, see how she was getting on in her home environment. Medicine is practiced the same in countries across the world let alone across state lines.
I wish my mother was still here with us but she is not. This is 2017 – Telemedicine should be available to everyone.
I wish all my friends and family and all the patients and clinicians had the opportunity to access Telemedicine.
All the patients, clinicians should have access to Telemedicine – remove the regulatory barriers and make this a reimbursable event. We should be able to access care ANYTIME, ANYPLACE, ANYWHERE
