Like many of you, the past months for me have been learning about how to transfer what was my everyday normal life into online mediums. Some have worked well, while others have fallen short. For instance, I liked virtual workout classes better than I would have expected. However, a zoom or facetime call with my 86 year old father ends up feeling more sad than satisfying. However, only this week did I finally experience my first health televisit, with my physician who wanted to discuss a medication change.
Given that I have spent the last ten months working with sites interested and eager to introduce digital options into their clinical research realm, I felt this was an opportunity for me to observe how the process works in healthcare.
