In this series, we look at the emergence and evolution of telehealth and the many ways technology is being used to bring specialty care to underserved patients outside of major medical centers. We also bring you perspectives from CNA and the Nurses Service Organization about potential risks associated with telehealth and strategies to enhance clinical, operations and technical processes associated with telehealth. Finally, we share stories from nurses around the state who are using telemedicine to better serve patients through emergency department stroke care, lung cancer screenings, neurological exams at a distance, telepsychiatry and more.
