In April of 2020, GRACE Board Members Dr. H. Jack West, Dr. Jared Weiss and Dr. Ben Levy had a candid discussion regarding telemedicine in the time of the current pandemic.

In this time of social distancing and limiting clinic exposure, the sudden need for telemedicine and web consults is perhaps changing the future of medicine on a faster pace than we have previously thought possible.

In this three part series the doctors discuss a wide range of topics surrounding the use of telemedicine and potential challenges for providers and patients alike. 

  • Does this new process create new helpful tools?
  • How does the informality of online visits affect the Doctor/Patient relationship?
  • Are there limitations to telemedicine - when and who is it good for, does it disrupt the ritualization of doctor/patient visits, and the ability to assess the patient?
  • Is it sustainable?

Please scroll down for parts 2 and 3 of this series.
