Administering a Telemedicine Program.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to describe the process of administering a telemedicine program including reviewing telemedicine guidelines; discussing licensing, credentialing, and privileging of providers; outlining scheduling and recruitment of patients; and measuring outcomes of a telemedicine program.
RECENT FINDINGS: Recent literature findings suggest that telemedicine in specialty clinics continues to grow at a rapid pace. Medical specialty programs should prepare to adopt a practice that includes telemedicine to better serve their patients and families who have expressed significant satisfaction with the delivery of healthcare in this manner. With the appropriate support, any specialty clinic can provide their patients with a telemedicine option which has shown to be highly successful for Children's Mercy Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Department.
