IN-4-AHA: "Telehealth and health systems resilience"


COVID-19 has highlighted the need to plan, develop, and deliver more flexible and adaptable health care services. Being able to provide at-home care: teleconsultations, remote monitoring, physical exercise, and physiotherapy sessions, among others, allowed patients to continue their treatment plans during the lockdown.

These tools aren’t new, though. Teleconsultations, for example, have been a solid trend for a while, but now their value has been tested and proven. This webinar will provide an overview of the files of telehealth, with experts from the CONNECT project, while at the same time, showcasing real-life examples of these types of technologies that present a brave new world for patients, health care practitioners, and entrepreneurs.
