Abstract

Telemedicine has been proved to be effective across several different medical fields. It increases access to patients and reduces travel burden. In the context of an ongoing pilot study of telemedicine for individuals with migraine, we completed in-person baseline assessments and follow-up visits via telemedicine to test the hypothesis that follow-up care delivered by telemedicine is at least as effective as with in-office visits. We then investigate ways in which telemedicine could add economic value to patients through convenience and better compliance, and benefit specialists through efficient clinical pathway.
