The Pan-American Rheumatology Day that is celebrated on May 31st. In our Global Rheumatology podcast: Un Café por la Reumatología today we present a special program that we have called Global Conversations

During the health emergency x COVID-19, the limitation of face-to-face consultations allowed the widespread application of Digital Health and telemedicine tools, such as video and telephone consultations, which have been and will continue to be valuable tools to monitor patients with chronic diseases in order to identify and prioritize patients in need of medical attention.

Although face-to-face clinical evaluation and examination are still essential in the care of these patients, eHealth and telemedicine tools have facilitated the optimization of care. However, what happens to the doctor-patient relationship with the use of these technologies?

Has this relationship worsened or improved?
