Tools for Practice Tuesday: Some Pediatric Telehealth at #ATA2016

Currently The American Telemedicine Association is having their annual conference (using the hashtag #ATA2016).  I had the pleasure of running into the tweets regarding a presentation about uses of Telemedicine for pediatrics.

Telehealth can increase reach to those who don’t have access to care and appears to be growing…

 

I would love to hear your experiences/research with telehealth? Do you have a story about the practice (good, bad, or indifferent)?  Please feel free to comment and share resources that have helped you formulate a decision about telehealth….
