We are entering an age where technology and convenience are driving patients to favour online consultations. Practitioners must therefore, adapt and innovate to meet this growing market and what may be overlooked in the process is the ethical and legal aspects of protecting patient data.
Today we are joined by dietitian, Robbie Clark who, like many others, started to explore the possibilities of taking his practice digital and what he discovered in the process is not only shocking, but relatively unknown.
