The coming of the coronavirus pandemic has radically recast the relations between patients and practitioners. The face-to-face has, in many cases, given way to appointments on Zoom. How, in these changed circumstances, can one still be a savvy patient and a savvy practitioner?
Dr. Adam Licurse knows this brave new world well. He oversees a large metropolitan hospital’s telemedicine efforts--at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston--and he is a committed user of telemedicine in his own internal medicine practice. He will talk about both. You will learn when remote visits make sense and when they do not, why the safety and ease of remote visits may actually improve your health, and how allied electronic technologies may make remote visits even more productive in the future. And Dr. Licurse will address a key institutional issue: once the coronavirus is under control, will telemedicine cease as abruptly as it surfaced, or will it become an ongoing part of medical care, to be used, like all the other tools of medicine, as appropriate for each medical case? Dr. Licurse looks forward to hearing your concerns and answering your questions.
Dr. Licurse is the Executive Director for Virtual Care at Brigham Health, leading the hospital system’s telemedicine team and programming, as well as a Medical Director for Virtual Care for the Mass General Brigham health system and the Brigham and Women’s Physicians Organization. He is also an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. His research and teaching focuses on virtual and digital care tools, population health, and patient engagement. He practices General Internal Medicine at Brigham Health. He holds an MD and an MHS from Yale. In addition to his administrative responsibilities at BWH and his medical practice, he has contributed articles to Harvard Business Review and to Health Affairs, Catalyst/The New England Journal of Medicine, and other specialized medical journals.
