Telehealth is the practice of medicine using a “virtual visit” with the aid of video conferencing technology. The main advantage of Telemedicine is that it allows patients to access an Orthopedic Specialist without an in-person visit. Video conference technology also allows for “live” visual examination of the hand and upper extremity. It is also possible to review radiographic images by “sharing your desktop” and allowing patients to concurrently view x-rays, CT’s, and MRI’s.
