APTA has launched a new podcast series that will address physical therapists' practice in the realm of telehealth. The first podcast in the series provides an overview of telehealth and focuses on providing integumentary and wound management physical therapy rehabilitation services via telehealth. Harriett B. Loehne, PT, DPT, CWS, FACCWS, the recipient of the 2010 Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth Partner of the Year Award, shares her experiences with 2 telemedicine systems—Real Time and Store-and-Forward—and how they have helped expand staff's advanced wound management knowledge in a manner that has been cost effective, timely, and efficient for patients and health care providers.
Alan Chong W. Lee, PT, DPT, PhD, CWS, GCS, associate professor of physical therapy at Mount St Mary's College, hosts the podcast. Loehne currently performs more consults via telemedicine than any other consultant in Georgia.
