Telehealth lets providers dial into disease management
Most healthcare providers would love to have the ability to be in more than one place at the same time in order to better provide quality care to their growing number of patients. This is especially true of those providers who monitor patients with chronic conditions, such as congestive heart failure, diabetes, or obesity. "We have to change the way that we do healthcare, and I think telehealth is the way of the future," says Linda Wick, RN, a nurse practitioner who manages the heart failure disease management program at St. Mary's Duluth (MN) Clinic.
