Each year, there are 2 to 4 million sports-related concussions in the United States. The topic of concussion has become a national news headline over the past year.
At the South Central Telehealth Forum 2016, held in Nashville on August 1 & 2, Dr. R.J. Elbin, PhD, Assistant Professor in Exercise Science at the University of Arkansas and Director of the Office for Sport Concussion Research, presented his findings on patient satisfaction when receiving health care face-to-face and via telehealth for sport-related concussions.
Dr. Elbin presented specific data from his research including:
- Can the clinical visit for concussion be conducted via telemedicine?
- Does telehealth belong on the sidelines?
- Is teleconcussion a viable option for speciality referral?
- Are patients satisified with the telehealth option, especially in medically-underserved areas?
