The use of telehealth has surged since the start of the pandemic. Specialists and other health care providers are able to expand their reach to patients. Many Pennsylvanians have come to rely on phone and video appointments with their doctor.
Dr. Michael Seavers, who leads the M.S. in Healthcare Informatics graduate program at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, sat with FOX-43 to discuss the expansion of telehealth.
