With current technology and techniques, virtual care is most useful in situations where exercise, education, selfmanagement instruction, and monitoring are the primary methods used to accomplish the therapeutic goals. With creativity, these forms of therapy are fairly easily adaptable to the virtual environment. For example, virtual care for orthopaedic surgical recovery through progressive ROM, strength, functional exercises, self-mobilization, and education has been shown to be shown to achieve similar outcomes to physical visits for several conditions.
Is it technically complicated?
Not really. While you will inevitably encounter occasional difficulties (as we all do with technology), the general level of digital literacy you require to operate in society generally will allow you to participate in providing virtual care. Of course, you will learn more and encounter some frustrations as you initiate service, but as you do more it becomes quite easy.
