What Are Multidisciplinary Care Rounds (MDR’s)?
MDRs are defined by the unique characteristic of incorporating a multitude of both physician and non-physician specialties into the conversation with the patient for the coordination of their care.
What is Discussed During an MDR?
Activities relating to the care of the patient that may be incorporated into the MDR include summarizing the treatment that the patient has undergone, discussing the treatment approach that is planned for the patient, working through potential issues that may arise from the treatments, and discussing the potential future therapy.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is the delivery of Health-care related activities or information via telecommunications technologies (eg. web conferencing). It is differentiated from telemedicine in that the focus is expansive and includes preventative as well as curative aspects.
