Telemedicine and Its Role in Contemporary Gynecology

Provider Telehealth Online

Contemporary gynecologic practices and the role Telemedicine will play today and the future.

Whether they know it or not, most gynecologists have practiced a form of telemedicine in the past, such as by taking phone calls from patients asking for medication refills. In these cases, physicians have either acquiesced and called pharmacies to refill the medications or denied the requests and suggested to patients that they make an appointment and receive a new prescription. The latter action will probably not endear patients, especially millennials, to a gynecologist.
