Beyond the sheer logistics of keeping a cancer center safe for patients during a global pandemic lie the downstream effects of necessary safety measures, from the acceleration of telemedicine adoption to increased fear and anxiety.
A new study confirms the feasibility of orthopaedic virtual visits for patients with pediatric spinal deformity. Pediatric orthopaedic surgeon Ryan Goodwin, MD, explains the results of his research, which point to comparable levels of patient satisfaction when compared with in-person visits.
Cloud computing makes it possible to take telemedicine beyond information transfer to advanced information processing that can enhance expert subspecialty consultations.
We profile three ways in which our Neurological Institute is enhancing the clinical value of virtual visits and/or expanding their reach through innovative new platforms and technologies for patient use.
Cleveland Clinic is a non-profit academic medical center. Advertising on our site helps support our mission. We do not endorse non-Cleveland Clinic products or services Policy
Our Neurological Institute is introducing a smartphone app that augments virtual visits by replicating portions of the physical exam by allowing patients to self-administer neuroperformance tests at home.
The technology is available to empower patients to monitor their blood pressure at home. The main limiting factor is how well monitoring devices are integrated into your practice and workflow.
New studies from our Neurological Institute show that large-scale implementation of tele-epilepsy and teleneurology in general is feasible, sustainable and associated with high levels of patient satisfaction.
Although prompted by the pandemic, virtual SMAs are likely to persist long-term for the sometimes marginalized and isolated population of patients with FMDs.
Care by phone allows med students to continue geriatric rotation and unearths some serious health concerns.
Front-line physicians are working behind the scenes with IT and coders to translate federal telehealth policies and waivers into electronic workflows that are clinician-friendly, while still ensuring proper documentation of care that meets clinical communication needs and supports reimbursement.
