ABSTRACT

As the health-care industry continues to be pushed to find new, innovative ways to deliver quality care with an emphasis on enhancing quality of life, the use of advanced practice providers and telemedicine technology are two promising developments at the forefront of this new era. Advanced practice providers have been shown to provide highly effective, quality patient care. They often deliver this care at a decreased cost to the patient and healthcare system. Telemedicine technology allows providers to access patients through new, patient-centered avenues, thus enhancing their healthcare experience. Advanced practice providers are well equipped to apply telemedicine technology to expand access to care and innovate new care delivery models. This article describes the design and implementation of a novel telemedicine care model within a malignant hematologic team.
