The COVID-19 crisis will produce many spin-off side effects, as we all recognize. One of those will be the expansion of telemedicine. Beyond bridging distances and ease of appointments, add to the list 'safety and protection from disease transmission.' Telemedicine platforms and user-friendly apps are steadily improving the virtual experience. For orthopaedic injury evaluation exams there is an inherent caution regarding palpating a claimant, and accuracy is skewed. Here, detailed observation as opposed to hands-on touch can yield 90 percent of the essential data. Standardized scoring for various joints and functions will become widely utilized. Standardized data collection will improve 'outcome' knowledge. Our polititions have stated "this (covid-19) is a war!" I agree. And like all war times a boom in knowledge is a side-effect. Expanding the applications for telemedicine will be one of many. Reducing physical contact exposures with telemedicine capability is a natural fit. And remember to wash your hands!
