Morning all - posting this one a little early.

I loved the thoughts and responses forming the counterarguments of Day 2's question. Let me give you another question along the same vein - prepare the counterarguments...

There is a reasonable criticism levied against us medical folks that consults are becoming less patient-focused, less relationship-oriented - and more procedural, assembly-line-like, where we fire off questions at our patients, type away on Epic, and sometimes don't even lay a hand on them.

How does Telemedicine NOT take us further down this road? Or does it? Is it just a necessary thing we have to do address patient needs in rural and regional areas, or is there bona fide good that comes from Telemedicine and electronic approaches that are overlooked?
