Hi all
Thanks Dean,
In an era where the use of virtual care, eConsults, remote monitoring, and video visits are rapidly expanding we desperately need criteria for helping virtual care physicians and provider know when these types of visits are appropriate. And tools (guidelines, intelligent self-triage) for patients. Physical exam skills are needed but need the be used in conjunction with new models of care delivery.
