What You Should and Shouldn’t Do In Telemedicine

 

Your value as a clinician comes from two sources, your expertise and your prescribing privileges.

 

 

 

Avoid telemedicine opportunities which seek to leverage your ability to prescribe—companies that sell braces, creams, diagnostic testing and the like. They seek to use you to extract money from the healthcare system.

 

 

 

Embrace telemedicine opportunities which seek to leverage your expertise.  Cross-coverage services are a good example. They look to add value to the healthcare system through your insights as to the care of the patient.

 

 

 

With them, there really is no limit on the benefits which you can generate. . .

 

 

 

for both your patients and yourself.
