S5 Ep 15 - The Future of Medicine Is Telemedicine

Is Telemedicine the Future of Health Care? 

The coronavirus pandemic has overwhelmed hospitals, physicians, and the medical community. It has pushed telemedicine into the hands of providers and patients as the first response for primary care. But how does it work and what does it mean for the future of health care?

In this episode, Laura Purdy enlightens us on the meaning and benefits of telemedicine. She shares some insights and methods for running a successful business and Telehealth organization. 

To give you a little background on our guest, Laura Purdy is a board-certified family medicine physician who is wrapping up 14 years as an officer in the US Army. She started working in telemedicine in 2016 as a full-time physician and became the medical director of MDLIVE.

After MDLIVE, Laura became one of the Regional Medical Directors of Hims and Hers, and entered the telehealth industry gig-economy style. She has 49 (soon to be 51!) state medical licenses and has co-founded two telehealth companies.
