One of the things we do with our interns is present patients for them to work with and manage. This is usually done by giving them information and letting them set a plan of action, and then we text back and forth as if the intern is the caregiver and either Steve or I is the patient. We have seen the positive results of this in the ability of the intern to have almost instantaneous communication with the patient.

This has also been reflected in the use of telemedicine for diabetes patients. It appears that many patients feel like they are getting better care with telemedicine than they did visiting their doctor.

 

This week Melinda Rodriguez, our intern from LECOM College of Pharmacy, shares an article on how to best serve your patients on these telemedicine visits.
