Urologist discusses overcoming telemedicine barriers


“A lot of medicine that you do in person is very provider-centric in the sense that you tend to just walk from room to room and see patients, whereas with virtual care, you need to change the workflow a little bit,” says Chad Ellimoottil, MD, MS.

Many non–reimbursement-related barriers remain in successfully implementing telemedicine in a practice, according to Chad Ellimoottil, MD, MS. Ellimoottil is Assistant Professor of Urology and Director of the University of Michigan’s Telehealth Research Incubator.
