Assistant Professor Saif Khairat‘s latest work on the use of Telemedicine to improve health access for vulnerable populations using telemedicine was just published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA).

The paper, titled “Advancing health equity and access using telemedicine: a geospatial assessment, ” investigates the impact of improving health equity and access through the use of an on-demand urgent care telemedicine platform. Their study demonstrates that using telemedicine improves health equity levels and provides more healthcare access to rural communities that typically suffer from lack of quality and access to care.
