This course outlined understanding how to educate your patients about telehealth as well as how to optimize telehealth for educational purposes. We discussed best practice tips, benefits, and challenges. Preparation is vital to ensuring patients are well-informed and comfortable with their telehealth options.
It will be important in the future to stay abreast of new technology, laws, and regulations, and understand how these will affect your practice and how you deliver telehealth services. It will require updating education materials, training and engaging consumers on new devices, and innovating the way we deliver telehealth to make it easier for consumers and clinicians. Telehealth is transforming healthcare but partnering with your patients is necessary to guarantee success.
