Purpose of ReviewAdvances in technology have expanded telemedicine opportunities covering medical practice, research, and education. This is of particular importance in movement disorders (MDs), where the combination of disease progression, mobility limitations, and the sparse distribution of MD specialists increase the difficulty to access. In this review, we discuss the prospects, challenges, and strategies for telemedicine in MDs.Recent FindingsTelemedicine for MDs has been mainly evaluated… Expand
Global Perspective on Telemedicine for Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
There is a growing evidence of the feasibility of telemedicine, cost and time savings, patients' and physicians' satisfaction, and its outcome and impact on patients' morbidity and quality of life, but there are still several challenges to widespread implementation. Expand
Multidisciplinary Telemedicine Care for Tourette Syndrome: Minireview
TLDR
It is believed that telemedicine could be a revolutionary method in improving medical access to patients with TS and discuss the potential contributions to care for TS patients with a multidisciplinary approach. Expand
Telemedicine for Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders
TLDR
This Viewpoint attempts to identify possible telemedicine solutions as well as discussing unmet needs and future directions by using a problem-based approach to review the current evidence for the use of telemedICine in various hyperkinetic movement disorders. Expand
Telemedicine in an Academic Movement Disorders Center during COVID-19
TLDR
Telemedicine is feasible, viable and relevant in the care of movement disorder patients, although health care disparities appear evident for women and minorities, as well as on patients with deep brain stimulators. Expand
Telemedicine in neurology
TLDR
Telemedicine use is expanding across the vast array of neurologic disorders, and evidence reports benefits in expediting care, increasing access, reducing cost, and improving diagnostic accuracy and health outcomes. Expand
Response to Telemedicine Visits From Patients With Parkinsonism During the COVID-19 Pandemic on Postvisit Surveys
TLDR
The experiences of patients with parkinsonism using telemedicine during the COVID-19 pandemic were investigated and urgent implementation, due to the pandemic, of telemedICine care for patients with Parkinsonism was feasible and well received. Expand
Telemedicine in Pediatrics: Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
Although more research is needed, the evidence from this review suggests that telemedicine services for the general public and pediatric care are comparable to or better than in-person services. Expand
Tele-monitored tDCS rehabilitation: feasibility, challenges and future perspectives in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
The implementation of tele-monitored tDCS (tele-tDCS) within standardized frameworks ensuring safety, tolerability, and reproducibility may allow this technology to reach larger clinical populations and bypass some of the common barriers preventing access to health services and clinical trials. Expand
The Clinical Value of Patient Home Videos in Movement Disorders
TLDR
Patients should be encouraged to produce good quality home videos, particularly in paroxysmal or fluctuating movement disorders, as they may add value to the eventual diagnosis and management. Expand
New patient access via telehealth in neuromuscular medicine during COVID-19.
TLDR
This study advances the understanding regarding the adoption and implementation of telehealth for new patients with neuromuscular disorders and was able to provide timely access and care to a significant number of patients who could not travel to the authors' institution during COVID-19. Expand
