Adopting Telemedicine in Practice
From the American Medical Association's Steps Forward Series
AMA's Steps Forward Module discusses the adoption and implementation of telemedicine and telehealth, as well as telemedicine's opportunity to support patient and care team coordination and communication through remote patient monitoring
As AMA highlights in this module, increasing administrative responsibilities—due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models—reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Telemedicine uses innovative technology to increase patient access, remotely manage acute and chronic conditions and support care coordination and communication among a patient’s health care team. When physicians and other providers work together to implement telemedicine tools, efficiencies in the health care delivery system can be improved.
