Description of CME Course

Telemedicine is becoming an increasingly common component of healthcare, driven by patient demand and vast improvements in technology. While the integration of telemedicine into daily practice in asthma management has been studied and implemented to a limited extent in over the last decade, many allergist and immunologists have had the need for telemedicine thrust upon them very suddenly. Thus, they lack familiarity with the benefits of telemedicine and are likely uncertain on how best to manage patient care in
this virtual setting. Hence, these clinicians will require education on best practices for incorporating telemedicine in the asthma and allergist clinic, including different strategies for virtual healthcare visits and remote patient monitoring, how to manage treatment in the telemedicine setting, and how to navigate the complex and continuously evolving legal and regulatory landscape pertaining to telehealthcare. This program will provide clinicians with the most up-to-date information on telemedicine in asthma care to promote easier transitions to this new and necessary form of care for their patients.
