Though telemedicine has been in use for some time, its use has grown exponentially since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic for medical and care organisations alike. Whether used in lieu of face-to-face appointments, improving accessibility for those with difficulties or engaging with once difficult to reach communities, telemedicine has helped many access better care and treatment.

During this 75-minute webinar, we will be taking a thorough look at the different ways telemedicine is currently being utilised across the world, for both diagnosis and care purposes, as well as to what the future of healthcare may look like as it continues to be adopted throughout the world. Additionally, we will also be examining the present and possible roadblocks in telemedicine, with questions posed around accessibility and the potential need for standardised guidelines.
