Telehealth physical exams boosted by new research

Clinical COVID-19 Technology Telehealth Virtual/Remote Care

Physical examinations are hampered by telehealth but latest research has curated the best work-arounds to maximise diagnosis.  

In this podcast we introduce Telepresence 5 – a suggested guideline for doctors to coach patients through self-examinations. We are joined by Professor Stephen W. Russell, from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, who explains Telepresence 5 and highlights some new home medical devices that are helping.  

Professor Russell touches on current research in virtual care technology in the United States. He says that there is still a long way to go in making telehealth more effective and that it is an area that is “ripe for research”.
