During the time of COVID-19, it is important for people with diabetes to continue to work with their health care team to manage diabetes. Technology can play an important role in this process. Recently, there has been a push for more telehealth visits so that patients can connect with doctors, nurses, and other members of their health care team remotely. To be successful, telehealth programs should be patient-centered, include video software with electronic health records, and establish a protocol for pre-visit and post-visit tasks.
