Telemedicine effective in assessing, managing adolescent concussion

June 26, 2017

“Using this technology is not only cost-effective, but it increases the number of providers that can manage concussions,” Cydne Marckmann, DNP, ARNP, FAANP, from the Frontier Nursing University and the University of Washington, said in an interview with Infectious Diseases in Children. “This gets kids back to school quicker and helps manage any pitfalls that may come along the way.”
