Introduction to Tele-Ophthalmology Guide
In response to the increased use of telemedicine and its impact on the delivery of ophthalmic services, the ASCRS•ASOA Telemedicine Task Force created the guide, “Introduction to Tele-Ophthalmology,” as an educational resource for physicians and administrators to learn about teleophthalmology. ASCRS•ASOA members have exclusive access to this guide, designed to educate readers on the benefits of tele-ophthalmology, various delivery methods, reimbursement, potential liabilities, and challenges.
