Special Episode: COVID-19 and the Rise of Telemedicine
Using Virtual Appointments to Care for NET Patients
In this special episode of NETWise, we learn how COVID-19 is forcing our health care systems to make sweeping operational changes. Amid lockdown and stay-at-home orders, NET specialists are switching to telemedicine visits as a new option.
The increased use of telemedicine over the past few months is creating new opportunities for NET patients. We recognize that not all NET patients have access to a NET specialist. Traveling to faraway appointments may not be an option. But virtual appointments via telemedicine are now helping NET patients across the country reach out to NET specialists.
Listen as we talk with Dr. Heloisa Soares and her NET care team at the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah to learn more about how telemedicine works and its benefits to NET care. We also talk to a NET patient about her positive experiences using telemedicine and how to prepare for a successful virtual visit.
After listening to this episode, you will know more about how telemedicine can help you access the best possible care for your NET.
