The power of remote assessments is the flexibility in when and where they can be administered. However, with this increased flexibility comes a responsibility to collect data at a frequency that is meaningful but not burdensome for the patient. This article will cover how to navigate this tricky process and strike the balance.
Older adults shoulder a disproportionate burden of chronic diseases and consumption of prescription drugs.
