1/ #Metaverse can provide a virtual environment for #healthcare professionals to collaborate, share knowledge and ideas, and even perform surgeries!

This virtual collaboration can help eliminate barriers like distance and time, making healthcare accessible to all. 🌎🚫👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️
2/ Virtual reality can also help medical students and professionals train in a safe, immersive environment without risking any harm to real patients.

This can help them learn and practice complex procedures and techniques more effectively. 🎓💻👩‍⚕️👨‍⚕️

A major barrier to optimizing care delivery across the health system is the status quo bias that exists within the medical community.

Simply comparing #telemedicine to prior care models (hint: not exactly crowd-pleasers) won’t get us very far.…
3 points:

1️⃣Agreed✅: “The most important element of connection is the ability to connect at all.” Telemedicine can ⬆️ access.
2️⃣Telemedicine may actually be the “bedrock” of care for certain specialties or types of care.

It’s 2022. Let’s leverage 2022 technology.
3️⃣Incentives matter. If payers reward value, then ultimately it’s the outcome that matters; not the medium used to communicate.

Care redesign that improves population health won’t occur in a fee-for-service system.

So the problem of MD shortages is so very real. ❤️ the timely article, agree with so much of it, but only partial solutions discussed here. A thread for some more color to this 🧵 1/8…
As the MD numbers don’t add up from supply-demand curves, we started a “fellowship/residency” for NP/PAs in critical care & then pulmonary @RKleinpell is a pioneer in this space.…
At some point #Telemedicine has to be considered to leverage technology & scale expertise. @ADVISSOR_One is trying to lead this on a national scale…

Yesterday at #TargetedChat we talked about a challenging case of a young individual with recurrent UNRESECTABLE colon cancer after adjuvant.

Here’s a 🧵 on the questions/answers. No one right away. What would you do differently?👇🏾Read/reply along #ColorectalCancerAwarenessMonth Image
It was interesting to see the distribution on the chemo backbone options.

👇🏾With the doublets and triplets discussion, a little bit of art 🖼 to the science 🧪

Have to see and individualize in each patient which tools 🛠 from the toolbox 🧰.

Why is there so much talk about ambulance offload delays? A look into the process, challenges, and solutions (a 🧵).
While not a new problem, there has been increased conversation on ambulance offload delays as we weather this latest COVID surge. Systems all over the world are struggling to get ambulances back in service in a timely manner after transporting pts to the hospital.
@NEMSISTAC nationwide data shows offload times (elapsed time from the arrival of an ambulance with a pt to the ED until the ambulance is back in service) have increased and spiked at various times in 2020 & 2021 (red + purple lines) compared to 2018 & 2019 (blue + green lines).

Leaving my primary care practice:
a thread 🧵 Image
In March 2020, my practice of 13 years closed to protect our patients and staff. Thanks to the #telemedicine platforms I put in place a year prior, we overnight converted our 70+ provider practice to telemedicine for the next 2.5 months.
After years of hustling in clinic, full-time #telemedicine provided time to skillfully coordinate care and provide thorough counseling. Working from home without the frenetic churn of the clinic, I was living my best life and delivering the best medical care of my career.

1/ #WorldHealthDay is also a good day to reflect on the opportunities that many India's health challenges bring. In this thread, we summarise some.
First, investing more in health and recognizing disease prevention and health promotion should be the topmost priority.
2/ Currently, India has one of the lowest allocations to health among all countries of the world as percentage of GDP.
3/ As a result of such a low investment in health and due to high out-of-pocket expenditure (85.6% according to the @WorldBank) millions of people are pushed further into poverty and are unable to escape.

#Telemedicine Pitfalls Thread

Rhea Chakraborty filed an FIR against Dr. Tarun Kumar of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital under the provision of IPC 1860, the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Drugs Act, 1985, and Telemedicine Practice Guidelines, 2020.
Dr Tarun apparently Prescribed Drugs to Sushant Singh Rajput which are listed in the Schedule of NDPS Act as Psychotropic Substances which are not allowed under the Telemedicine Practice Guidelines
Prima facie, the prescription appeared to be fabricated. The medicines prescribed by the doctor are prohibited from being prescribed electronically without consultation with the patient

Adventures in #telemedicine. Why it's important to have an Emergency Plan. I was seeing an elderly patient this morning with chronic medical problems for an annual visit. Pleasant visit, nothing exciting, refilled medications, ordered labs. As we are about to wrap up visit.../1
...patient says "I suddenly don't feel so well." What? "I feel like I'm going to pass out." Then BOOM. Face plant. Patient is home alone, I am the only witness. I yell out the door to my assistant to tell my next patient that I will be late. /2
Patient regains consciousness after 10 long seconds. Please call 911 now. "I don't want to call 911. I'm fine." She loses consciousness again and falls off screen. I can't see her. I call 911. /3

#IndianPolice | Recently, @IDFCinstitute and @IPF_ORG jointly hosted a #webinar on ‘Pandemic Policing: Heath, Well-being, Morale & Motivation of #Police Personnel for Operational Continuity & Resilience’. Panelists included central & state police leaders & medical experts. (1/n) Image
The timeliness of the webinar can be gauged by the increasing number of #COVID19 related infections and fatalities within the police force. Data captured by @IPF_ORG as on 30 July 2020 is indicative of this: (2/n)
#covidwarriors Image
The importance of maintaining #Mentalhealth & morale was a key highlight of the webinar. Notable measures undertaken include setting up buddy systems, encouraging testimonials from officers who had recovered & focussing on personalised vis-a-vis mass communications (3/n)

Great opinion piece in @statnews co-authored by my colleague @Ateevm re: why #telemedicine is already losing it's precarious foothold in the U.S. healthcare system. Below is a summary of their line of reasoning in 3 tweets 🧵💡…
1) In any business, uncertainty in future conditions dampens interest in investing resources 💰 to establish a new, long-term capability.

2) Most US healthcare organizations are run as businesses that have limited resources and must make a profit to survive.
3) TEMPORARY regulations ⬆️⬆️uncertainty.

4) Regulations re: telehealth payments 💸 in the #COVID19 pandemic have been explicitly TEMPORARY.⏱️

5) As such, it would be misguided to expect US healthcare organizations to invest the significant resources 💰necessary to establish...
