Social factors not a barrier in families’ choice to use telehealth during the pandemic

Social, economic, and demographic factors that can influence health did not affect families’ acceptance of telehealth for their children’s cardiac care during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a study presented at the Pediatric Academic Society 2021 Virtual Meeting. The study, by research team members at the Nemours Children’s Health System, suggests that telehealth is a feasible tool for families regardless of household income, language, or insurance type.
