    Telemedicine is care at a distance, where patient and clinician are connected by information technology that may include video, audio, and monitoring equipment linked by computer. There are many advantages like providing expert care and support to people in remote locations. There are also disadvantages like regulatory questions about practice across state lines, privacy and safety concerns as well as how patients are valued and respected without an in-person encounter. Join the conversation at Spring Ethics Grand Rounds.
