Telemedicine For The Future

Leslee Gross, Assistant Vice-President of Operations at Baptist Health South Florida, says telemedicine will be accepted in the future and will be treated as the same face-to-face visits that you have with your physician, it is just a different delivery system but it is the same medicine. According to Gross, all of the physicians are trained and credentialed. They are trained to go over as they would in an inpatient setting or in an office setting. Lisa-Mae Williams, Operations Director of Telehealth-elCU at Baptist Health South Florida, points out they have a secure network and the patients sign a consent to treat and also, they do not record to maintain the patient's privacy.
