It was an honor to sit on the panel for a presentation on ‘Telemedicine: practical tips for implementation into your daily practice’ at this past years’ Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Annual Meeting. Since it was in New Orleans, I wasn’t that upset about traveling to the city of Jazz and beignets.
I was honestly surprised and impressed by how well the talk was attended, and it was great to see so many other otolaryngologists looking to incorporate telemedicine into their practice to improve patient care.
The other members of the panel were inspiring: Dr. John Kokesh helped create a system of telehealth to provide otolaryngology care to the underserved across the vast distances of Alaska, and Dr. David Cognetti has been utilizing telehealth in an urban settings in innovative ways to improve the quality of Jefferson University Health’s Head and Neck Cancer Care. If you have an interest in telemedicine in ENT, you should read about these two innovators work.
The full video of the panel can be found on the AAO-HNS website, under the AcademyU (however you must be an Academy member to view it).
We hope to expand upon the panel next year. Thank you to everyone who attended.
