  1. Is anyone practicing telemedicine? I have found a couple of opportunities, but nothing has panned out yet. If anyone has advice on this, please let me know.
  2. I wish we had Telemed as a specialty topic I have been looking for work in Temed for years. The AAPA is now pushing to get us into the role and a new website "TelehealthMany PAs have asked about opportunities in virtual medicine and telehealth. The Medicare program reimburses PAs for providing all covered telehealth services in the same manner as physicians. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services temporarily expanded telehealth and telemedicine services to enable beneficiaries to receive a wider range of healthcare services without having to travel to an office, clinic, or health care facility. PAs are fully included in the telehealth and telemedicine expansion program. PAs can find out more information about telehealth, telemedicine, and reimbursement at AAPA’s Reimbursement website. They may also be interested in joining AAPA’s special interest group, PAs in Virtual Medicine and Telemedicine (PAVMT)." https://www.pavmt.org/ for PA interested in Telemed
  3. Do to my health I am trying to look for Telehealth or telecommuting work. I dont know where to start. I am also willing to be a chart auditor - anything that would let me work from home. I am asking for any tips on how to best find this work, and or advice from those that are doing that kind of work now. Thank you
  4. Has anyone here ever worked a position that was purely telemedicine (ie. completely remote/practicing from anywhere). I was wondering if any of these U.S. positions are feasible to do from overseas in locations where PAs have not been adopted into the healthcare system locally. Some of the job descriptions sound like they could potentially be done completely remotely. Curious if anyone has had experience with this and what it was like.
  5. This may be a silly question.. Does anyone work from home? I have been working in pain management for 3 years and recently had a baby. I love my job but have also been trying to think of ways to be home a little more.. Has anyone gotten into telemedicine? Or has anyone done some form of stay at home work? I know rns have several opportunities such as triage or case management but I am unsure if a PA could be hired for that type of work.. I don't want to waste my degree as when my LO gets older ill want to re-enter the field... Thoughts?
  6. The mammoth organization I work for is unbelievably heavy into promoting telemedicine. I am appalled and do not EVER want to participate in it - ever. I am old school and love the hands on and the gut feeling I get when I enter the room. Strep has an odor. Mono has an odor. Lungs have sounds........................... Nothing can replace the feeling of grasping a swollen calf or checking for pitting edema. So, I feel it is being forced on me in my organization and is being heavily advertised to employers as a way to keep employees from leaving work but letting them AND their families have affordable healthcare. The concept - a private room at the employers site with a skype type set up and "maybe" an MA on site - I guess vitals are optional or they will just leave the DynaMap in the room for the patient to play with........ Anyway, we are supposed to see the patient via video and have 2 way audio to ask questions. Then - diagnose and suggest treatment and send in Rxs. I am overwhelmingly against this idea and would never want to compromise my medical ethics or integrity in the name of the almighty dollar - it is advertised as "patient centric and friendly" but there is writing between the lines. Some companies have even hired a new admin position (wow, we need more admins) that is the VP of Telemedicine or some other lovely title. So, let the discussion begin. Does anyone have experience with this? What is the thought process? Are students being taught about this currently? If we are opposed to it - how does one address it within the scope of practice and still keep a job? Does AAPA have a statement about it? 25 yr PA been there, done that
