Use of telehealth was already on the rise before the COVID-19 public health emergency, but the pandemic has brought it to the forefront of medical care. With its increased use came a lot of questions—“How can I assist pediatric patients with limited access to technology? “Do this patient's symptoms make them a good candidate for telehealth?
“How do I code this visit? Pediatric Telehealth Best Practices answers those questions and seeks to help pediatric providers develop efficient, effective telehealth services within their own practices.
Pediatric Telehealth Best Practices goes beyond AAP policy to offer straightforward strategies for establishing and sustaining a successful telehealth program. Its contents are curated from AAP published content, including guidance from the Section on Telehealth Care as well as journals and books.
The American Academy of Pediatrics is an organization of 67,000 primary care pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists and pediatric surgical specialists dedicated to the health, safety and well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults. The AAP is the largest pediatric publisher in the world, with a diverse list of resources that includes essential clinical and practice management titles and award-winning books for parents.
