Description

The development and advancement of communication technology has facilitated the delivery of care from a distance, otherwise known as telehealth. Over the last few decades, telehealth has grown in popularity as it offers a more convenient, economical and, in recent times, safer form of consultation, patient monitoring and asynchronous data collection than traditional healthcare. Practitioners who are mindful of the COVID-19 pandemic have taken advantage of telehealth given its ability to reduce viral transmission and protect patients from infection. Its use may be especially important for patients who are at risk of severe complications of COVID-19, such as those requiring cardiac surgery or recovering from cardiac surgery. This paper aims to illustrate and analyze the use of telehealth as a preoperative and postoperative option for cardiac surgery both in the context of COVID-19 and beyond. Special considerations were made to health disparities and physician/patient satisfaction.
