Abstract

Adoption of telehealth in response to the COVID-19 pandemic has predicted virtual healthcare services to reach 1 billion by the end of 2020.1 As Medicare relaxed regulations, telehealth claims increased more than 11,000% in a six-week period.2 Accelerated telehealth utilization presents opportunities to generate evidence and improve services. Given the scarcity of educational resources to assist clinicians in delivery of remote wound care, we aimed to identify wound care-specific telehealth best practices.
