COVID's impact on telemedicine and the benefits it brings
While telemedicine isn’t intended for emergency care (like a broken bone, heart attack, or mental health crisis) or certain procedures (like immunizations or providing samples), it is appropriate and has been found to be quite effective for long-term care, follow-up appointments, issuing prescriptions, and answering simple questions. This makes it a great choice for people with Parkinson’s. Telemedicine eliminates the potential challenges of traveling to an appointment and gives you ready access to your providers when necessary. It also helps you conveniently build and maintain long-term relationships with your care team.
