We’re go­ing to see telemedicine im­prove and take off, and though it will take years, dis­tance medicine will be­come more nor­mal ver­sus the un­usual sit­u­a­tion it is now. Telemedicine is just an­other out­let to be able to pro­vide care for pa­tients from their home set­tings or from skilled-nurs­ing fa­cil­i­ties. If they au­tho­rize pay­ment for Medi­care pa­tients for telemedicine, or if you see more Medi­care Ad­van­tage and man­aged Medi­care, telemedicine is a shoo-in. It just makes sense to be able to care for the pa­tient pop­u­la­tion more ef­fec­tively.
