With the emergence of telemedicine, where do nurses fit in?
from By Joan Spitrey
Remote medical monitoring is what most frequently think of in regard to telemedicine. If fact, the use of remote monitoring has been in place for more than 40 years, and has be highly effective in rural areas. But the overall concept of telemedicine is to bring a specialist's expertise to a facility "virtually," saving the patient being transported unnecessarily. So much has changed in the healthcare world with the advent of technology and the evolution of telemedicine. And telemedicine continues to evolve as technology becomes more advanced. So where do nurses fit into this changing landscape?
