Simulating Telehealth Experiences in the Neonatal Care Environment: Improving Access to Care

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Telehealth in the neonatal environment can improve remote medical care and access to specialized care and training eliminating barriers for effective health care delivery. Clinicians are utilizing telehealth in their practice to provide specialized care and training in areas that have little access. Educating health care clinicians on the basics of telehealth is an essential component of clinical training programs. Use of simulation-based telehealth experiences as part of that training can provide hands-on learning in a safe, realistic environment. Simulation can prepare health care teams in using telehealth technology in managing patient care, postdischarge care, and specialized care programs.
