In the COVID-19 era, many of us are limiting contact with others, changing the way we do things – even when it comes to doctors’ visits.

In addition to implementing the necessary technological infrastructure, there was a need to educate patients about what telemedicine is: access to clinical services via electronic information and telecommunications technologies.
