Maximizing Potential: Utilizing APP-Physician Collaboration with Telemedicine to Extend Care

Rural healthcare systems experience additional challenges in an already competitive market operating with slim margins. Using advanced practice providers (APPs) is a proven method to expand medical care in rural areas. Similarly, telehealth offers these organizations a strategy to address urgent needs like physician staffing shortages and access to subspecialties in a cost-effective, scalable manner. The combination of the two can be a game-changer for providing high-acuity care in rural settings.
