Can Pulmonologist Telemedicine Improve Access to Care?
Pulmonologist telemedicine helps hospitals solve the staffing problems associated with recruiting and retaining physicians. Why is access to pulmonary care limited?
- Increased demand due to an aging population.
- Pulmonologists are retiring, which is creating a pulmonologist shortage.
- New physicians are not selecting this highly stressful field.
Pulmonologist telemedicine is a proven effective form of remote care. These specialists can diagnose and treat patients with COPD, allergies, lung infections and other respiratory diseases.
