December 03, 2014
Often when we think of telehealth we think of specialty care delivered to underserved areas. Having the specialist in the 'big city' connect via video with patients for examinations, follow-up, etc., is a great way to save time, money and to expand care to those who don't have a specialty provider locally (in the Northwest that means most people: we have two frontier states, with populations under six per square mile, and the other five have a high percentage of frontier and rural counties.
