"Children with medically complex cases are at a higher risk of becoming severely ill. So, being able to assess these patients from their homes, where they are less likely to be exposed to public areas or other critically ill patients, is important in reducing their risk. With telemedicine, we are able to provide care with a lot faster. We are more proactive with prescribing medication right then and there. If a patient needs a quick telemedicine appointment Friday afternoon, I will assess them and they don't have to wait the weekend to be seen, and there is no delay in getting the medication they need," he said. Mosquera says telemedicine should not replace critical in-person visits.
