We were in the midst of unprecedented times and we're seeing not only significant changes in our communities but also a shift in the way that we deliver healthcare. In an effort to "flatten the curve" of this abhorrent virus, many of us as clinicians were being forced into a delivery model of healthcare that many of us once deemed impossible. TELEREHABILITATION!

While for some telehealth is a new concept, there are many who have been using this mode of practice either in concert with in-person visits or independently prior to COVID-19.

Telehealth is a viable option for the delivery of care and offers benefits to us as clinicians to continue to deliver great care in a way that expands our geographic restrictions. For our patients, they have the benefit of convenience, cost savings as well as time savings.
