Telehhealth helps doctors keep caring for veterans
Segment features comments from Chuck Doarn, research professor and Master of Public Health Program Director in the Department of Environmental Health at the UC College of Medicine.
COVID-19 has kicked the use of telehealth into high gear. Kaiser Health News reports the Cleveland Clinic logged 60,000 such visits in March, up from an average of 3,400. For some hospital systems, like the Cincinnati VA Medical Center, telehealth success is the result of years of planning and use. The UC College of Medicine and College of Nursing are starting a telehealth certificate program this fall.
