As COVID-19 continues to upend life as most people know it, Elizabeth Knight, Practice Administrator at #SASpine, found herself in a new health care world. In this new world, there was a pressing need to make room for ways to see patients without having them come to a clinic. Telemedicine virtual appointments offered an answer.
“The need to use video appointments happened so fast,” Ms. Knight says. “I knew about video appointments but never used them before. But within a few days, I had trained the entire staff and we began using video appointments to see our patients.”
Ms. Knight acknowledges that the current use of video appointments serves a big role in public health and says they will continue to be an asset in the future. One drawback is not having access to a patient’s vital signs, but that can be overcome, she says.
“The more people use video appointments, the more comfortable they’ll become with the technology and the interactions with patients,” she says.
