Telehealth Makes Getting A Colonoscopy with MedStar Health Easier

MedStar Health is now using telehealth for the initial consult for otherwise healthy patients, instead of having them come in person to talk about the colonoscopy and then set it up. “So if we eliminate that barrier and just say, ‘Hey just come do it,’ I think you’re more likely to say, ‘Okay well I can skip a step, they made it easier for me’,” said Dr. David E. Stein, the Regional Chief of Surgery for MedStar Health Baltimore.
