Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, implementation of telemedicine for the delivery of urgent and ongoing health care has increased rapidly.
Many patients with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, particularly those who are homebound or live in rural areas, are likely to benefit from expanded access to subspecialty care via telemedicine.
The umbrella term telemedicine encompasses a broad range of health care tools, including video-conferencing, smartphone health care applications, body-worn sensors or smart homes equipped with sensors.
There is a growing literature on using telemedicine in movement disorders. There is accumulating evidence for videoconferencing to diagnose and treat patients with hyperkinetic movement disorders and to support providers in remote underserviced areas.
