The Elderly and Telemedicine



The healthcare response to lockdowns or to physical inaccessibility or costs associated with distance, has been to use telemedicine. But how useful is it especially when you are looking at older patients? Was it useful during COVID? Is this new technology as inclusive as we believe it might be? In this paper Dr. Nabeel Alsabeeha (this paper is based largely on his Master Dissertation), Dr. Momen A. Atieh and I explore this question using a systematic review.
