SUSAN ANDERSON | The Future of Telemedicine

VERMILLION, S.D. - Telehealth is a growing field that allows for the distribution of health-related services and information for a long-distance patient with a clinician contact.

On this week's episode of Credit Hour, Host Michael Ewald has a conversation with Susan Anderson, chair of family medicine at USD’s Sanford School of Health. They discuss the status of telehealth in South Dakota, why it’s important and the growing changes the field faces daily.

“Taking a good history doesn't change, having repore with a patient and being that partner with a patient and their healthcare doesn't change but how we receive the information, maybe some of the diagnostic tools that we were able to utilize, those continue to change and we want to adapt to those changes,” Anderson said.
