Lack of access to care is a critical issue facing too many patients and providers.  More and more consumers, clinicians and health care organizations are investing in virtual health as a solution. Virtual health—or telehealth—may seem like it’s a result of technology advances over the last decade.  But Dr. Elizabeth Krupinski of Emory University explains telemedicine history goes back 40+ years. In this episode, she tells us what’s behind virtual health’s slow build and why it is ready to boom.
