Question 1

How can we use telemedicine and/or telehealth in the development of claims to better serve individuals with a disability?


For example, is telemedicine useful for consultative examinations? Are there particular types of examinations or evaluations (such as psychological exams) that lend themselves to the use of telemedicine better than others? What has been the reaction of patients/claimants to the use of telemedicine, and do these reactions vary based on geographic area (rural vs. urban), educational level, or age, or other characteristics? Are there special considerations that we should be aware of?
