Telehealth’s Impact on Teen Care During COVID-19 in 200 Words
By Sarah Wood, July 16, 2020|
Stoneleigh Fellow Nadia Dowshen and her PolicyLab colleague Sarah Wood recently published a study examining their new telehealth program for adolescents.
As COVID-19 challenges how clinicians care for patients, we, along with our Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Division of Adolescent Medicine colleagues, have responded to these changes with rapid implementation of telehealth for adolescents.
In a new study, we highlight the outcomes from our telehealth program’s first 30 days. We were able to provide care for nearly 300 patients from five states for a variety of issues including eating disorders, reproductive health, gender-affirming care, HIV treatment and substance abuse.
