Reducing misdiagnosis with virtual second opinions

Telemedicine and telehealth services have been connecting patients and providers who aren’t sitting in front of each other for many years. The trend has been picking up speed in more recent years as some encounters leverage the internet and go virtual to contact their physicians or submit monitoring data. Now, more patients are using telemedicine to obtain a second opinion from specialists and subspecialists without having to travel into a larger city, or across the country.
