Async Telehealth SIG

August meeting: Join us for a discussion with clinicians from the Ocular SIG on how they are using async care as part of their practice. We’ll also finalize plans for the upcoming Telehealth Awareness Week.

Asynchronous telehealth allows patients and providers to communicate and exchange important health information when it is convenient for them, otherwise not in “real time”. Moving forward, hybrid care will be the new normal and we must implement rules and regulations at the state and federal levels that will allow for asynchronous telehealth to be advanced as it meet patients where they are, addresses digital barriers to access, helps patients to overcomes shame and stigma, and relieves provider burnout and burdens.
