In Ep 6, “Long-Distance Doctors: Health IT, Telemedicine + Texting Your Therapist,” epidemiologist and public health professor Dr. Nicole Cook talks about the promising and rapidly-growing field of telemedicine, along with its applications across many specialities including mental health. Here are some resources that helped shape the story:
- The history of telemedicine
- It’s on the editing room floor, but we also discussed the Affordable Care Act, Electronic Health Records and pre-existing conditions
- Everything you ever wanted to know about Health Information Technology
- In the news: Sara Jean Green of The Seattle Times wrote an important story on framing gun violence as a public health threat.
