Event Description

The COVID-19 pandemic prompted innovation for enhancing healthcare access, particularly through the expanded use of telemedicine. This continuing education presentation will outline the results of a mixed methods study conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic among perinatal providers (n = 196) and pregnant patients (n = 750) across 48 states, relaying their experiences utilizing telemedicine for routine prenatal care. Factors impacting telemedicine use and satisfaction will be explored in an effort to optimize telemedicine utilization and increase access to prenatal care.
