Telemedicine effective treatment option for asthma in children

Telemedicine effective treatment option for asthma in children
September 30, 2016

New study data published in Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology points to telemedicine as an asthma management option for children that is as effective as in-person visits to an allergist, according to a recent news release.

Researchers identified asthma patients who scheduled an appointment in the allergy clinic at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Kan. Only those who lived far distances from the hospital were included in the study. Participants were given the option to switch to telemedicine visits or keep their in-person appointments. They were followed for a period of 6 months.
