More physicians pursuing job opportunities in telemedicine
A new survey shows several of the primary characteristics of physicians who are interested in pursuing telemedicine opportunities. The lead author of a new survey published this week by San Francisco-based Doximity says the data sheds light on the kinds of physicians who are interested in practicing telemedicine. "The main takeaway is there has been a focus on the patient side of telemedicine and not much on the other side of the screen. So, it's interesting in our survey to see there is variation in the types of doctors who are engaged with telemedicine, and as more patients turn to telemedicine there are more telemedicine opportunities for doctors," Christopher Whaley, Ph.D., an assistant adjunct professor at University of California-Berkeley's School of Public Health, told HealthLeaders.
