DRCHSD Telehealth Webinar Series (2 of 2): Tailoring Telemedicine for Older Adults
Description: In this session, David will describe survey data indicating older adults’ impressions of and degree of acceptance of telemedicine, much of which debunks common misconceptions. David will also describe the Geisinger at Home Program which incorporates nurses and community health assistants visiting patients’ homes and facilitating social services and telemedicine visits with a physician. Lastly, he will describe some of the strategies we’ve deployed to ensure telemedicine tools are easy to use for patients regardless of age including providing host sites at local clinics, sending links directly to the patient’s phone, and pre-visit calls with virtual care assistants.
