Volume 116, Number 7 — July 2020

Looking Beyond COVID-19: Texas Medicine continues its coverage of COVID-19, looking to what lies ahead for physicians who adopted telemedicine during the pandemic thanks largely to more flexible regulations and payment policies that made the technology transition possible. Those same physicians may continue to rely on telemedicine as they reopen their practices to an influx of patients with neglected health conditions.
