Telehealth is revolutionizing health care delivery, and amid this transformation there has been both expansion of access and challenges inherent in the digital divide. This session surveys the rapidly evolving landscape of telemedicine and its implications for medicine. Speakers will discuss why telehealth is the future of medicine and tips to surmount common barriers to implementation.  While most individuals communicate with ease on videoconferencing platforms, telemedicine may be fraught with challenges for patients with tracheostomy or impaired communication. This session empowers clinicians with tools to provides safe, effective care within their time-constrained visits.  This webinar also considers how the principles of justice relate to the delivery of telehealth across populations.
