4. Patient preferences for direct-to-consumer telemedicine services: a nationwide survey. Read Here
Direct-to-consumer (DTC) telemedicine providers has the potential to change the traditional patient-physician relationship. Professional medical organizations recommend that telemedicine exists within the medical home. This study aims to understand patients’ preferences and desires for DTC telemedicine.
5. An Exploration of Useful Telemedicine-Based Resources for Clinical Research. Read Here
Clinical trials are vital to ensuring high-quality, effective, and safe health care interventions, but there are many barriers to their successful and timely implementation. Difficulties with participant recruitment and enrollment are primarily affected by problems with obtaining informed consent. Teleconsent is a telemedicine based approach to obtaining informed consent and offers a unique solution to limitations of traditional consent approaches.
