During the pandemic, care delivery had to adapt quickly to lockdowns as demand for services increased. This shift required providers and patients alike to make an unexpected pivot to telehealth. Now, three years into COVID, telehealth is here to stay. What have we learned about this new way to access and meet our healthcare needs? And how can we make it work better for us all?
“Just because you are not seeing the person in-person, you should still feel empowered to try to get a situation that makes you feel as comfortable as you can be. And if you don’t feel comfortable, you are always allowed to try to get a better situation for yourself” – Deborah L. Cabaniss, MD
Join Paul and Marjorie as they discuss how telehealth has changed mental health and what it means for accessibility and care for patients.
