I managed to get some time last weekend to record these videos on Rheumatoid Arthritis. Thanks to my patient wife for helping film using my iPhone 5 and a green screen, microphone & tripod set-up courtesy of clear.md.
Visit www.clear.md to search health topics and watch short, single-topic videos by doctors.
For our clinic, I'm attempting to record series of short videos answering what we believe will be common questions patients will have.
After receiving a diagnosis or during important time points in the disease management, for example, when we are discussing significant new medications, our rheumatology care coordinator will email patients links to these vidscriptions.
We don't plan for these to replace the discussion & education that takes place face-to-face, but these vidscriptions will reiterate and remind.
