Learn How to Use Telemedicine in Your Clinical Practice

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Learn How to Use Telemedicine in Your Clinical Practice. Telemedicine is not new, in fact, we first did a program on telemedicine 20 years ago on OMEN-TV, the predecessor of MedNet. But with the COVID pandemic of the past year, telemedicine has been adopted by most physicians as a regular and normal part of their practice. However, with that comes the question of how can we most optimally use telemedicine? Today on MedNet, we’re going to update you on how you can most effectively apply telemedicine to your own clinical practice. Joining me today are two MedNet veterans from the Ohio State University. Dr. Shengyi Mao is an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. And Dr. Nathan Richards is also an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics.
