The COVID-19 pandemic has shaped the fast-paced demand for telemedicine in the healthcare industry. As pediatric urology providers, it is important to understand this development in order to provide optimal care to patients, now and in the future.

On April 1st, 2020, the Chief of Pediatric Urology for Georgia Urology, ​Dr. Andrew J. Kirsch, ​and Rob Boschen, the Chief Information Officer at Georgia Urology, led a webinar for pediatric urologists, “American Academy of Pediatrics Telemedicine Guidelines in Pediatric Urology: An Urgent Call.”
