It’s hard to think that machines might do some tasks better than humans – especially clinicians who have trained for years to develop higher cortical skills. But they can, says Dr. Joseph Kvedar, especially when recognizing patterns in large data sets and using them to make predictions.
As telehealth crosses the threshold from ‘toy’ to tool, it’s imperative that healthcare organizations offer clinicians education and certification that is rigorous, research-based, and steeped in collective experiences, says Dr. Joseph Kvedar.
When it comes to telehealth is that the industry has grown by “leaps and bounds” since early 2020. But if the momentum is to continue, there’s still a lot of “critical work” that needs to be done, according to Joseph Kvedar, MD.
