Pituitary patients weigh in on telemedicine’s pros and cons

Today we discuss the findings of the recently conducted patient survey on telemedicine.  The survey shed some light on critical patient perspectives and perceptions, to help us arrive at some initial conclusions, and identify areas for further attention, education, and work.

Pituitary World News strongly believes telemedicine is a critically important service because, among other things, it broadens the reach of highly specialized services, which is essential for people with pituitary disorders  Since our launch we support listening to the voice of the patient and are committed to making sure all the players (patients, physicians, and industry) participate and collaborate to make it better.

 

Listen to Dr. Blevins and Jorge as they discuss the findings.  Our special thanks also to Linda M. Rio, M.A. MFT, for her invaluable input and research on this subject.
