Healthcare Technology in Context: Lessons for Telehealth in the Age of COVID-19
This book investigates if the technology used by telehealth services shapes our healthcare, and how can we, as humans, collectively change and shape the technology and services used in healthcare. Based on extensive field research on telehealth services in Australia and Brazil, it reveals some surprisingly obvious conclusions about our powers to shape the societies we live in.
‘In 2020, our lives changed. And the way we delivered healthcare changed as well. The rapid adoption of telehealth in countries across the globe has transformed healthcare, bringing both opportunities and risks. This timely publication examines the phenomenon of telehealth in the age of COVID-19.’
