In this edition of Hacking Healthcare, we take an in-depth look at telework. As the spread of COVID-19 has led to social distancing and other policies meant to curb infection rates, many industries are turning to telework to continue operations to the maximum extent possible. Below we outline some of the general challenges of this transition, as well as some specific difficulties the healthcare sector faces in adopting both telework and telehealth.
