Technologic optimization of a virtual disease focused panel during the COVID pandemic and beyond

Academic Article


  • Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, several service fields have opted for virtual work as much as possible, in order to decrease the spread of the virus. Although several articles have now addressed the key issues in telecommunications and medical education, none have described the digital or virtual functionality of a professional society disease focused panel (DFP) or inter-institutional collaborations. This is extremely important as we believe that the virtual functioning of the DFP will be the new norm for years to come. In this article, we highlight the limitations in the functioning of DFP brought forth due to the ongoing pandemic, while also providing the digital technologic solutions to adapt and also maintain or increase its productivity.
