COVID-19 has propelled the importance of capturing and assessing such information as wider gaps in inequities have been identified in the early pandemic data.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine was a means to an end. It contained all the facets of a desirable service for both patients and providers: scalability, convenience, ease of use, optimization. What it lacked: awareness and buy-in. Fast forward to March 2020, and telemedicine went from healthcare obscurity to a household name — if you didn’t know about it then, you do now. This presentation aims to capture that story of the landscape leading up to the pandemic, the tipping point, and what telemedicine may look like in the future as we continue to learn from this drastic shift in care delivery across all specialties in such a short period of time.
