Telemedicine Etiquette for Urologists

Neil H. Baum, MD, Clinical Professor of Urology at Tulane Medical School and author of the book Marketing Your Clinical Practice – Ethically, Effectively, and Economically, discusses why telemedicine etiquette is so important in these times of COVID-19. He emphasizes that good urologic care no longer requires doctors to touch the patients and that there are a large number of urologic patients that are very amenable to telemedicine. Dr. Baum highlights that many post-operative visits can be done via telemedicine, in some cases up to 50%, but emphasizes that successful meetings require preparation. He outlines the importance of having good equipment, lighting, and connectivity, as well as minimizing noise and other distractions. Dr. Baum also discusses some of the different tests that can be sent to a patient and be done from their home and the fact that more and more of this sort of patient care is going to become available as time goes on.
