Telemedicine gives you the opportunity to work how you want and where you want. Take advantage of that freedom and spend a little time creating a space that makes you crazy productive, motivated, and inspired to practice medicine your way.
Whether you are transitioning to full-time telemedicine from a traditional in-office practice, or simply adding part-time telehealth services to supplement your salary, you’ll want to consider your home workspace. Practicing telemedicine from home is relatively simple and requires very little equipment and setup. But it can be exciting to thoughtfully design a space that enables you to practice medicine from the comfort of home. And it’s also a good time to evaluate your old equipment and upgrade if you’ve been eyeing a new computer or office accessories.
Once you’ve taken stock of your equipment, you’ll want to ensure your office, or the room you plan to take consults in, is set up appropriately. Taking the time to design a comfortable and private workspace can improve your telemedicine practice efficiency, enhance the virtual patient experience, and create an ergonomic, zen-like environment you likely never imagined a career in medicine could provide.
