Walking The Tightrope: Trusting Your Life To Telemedicine by Wayne Liebhard discusses telemedicine, one of the latest innovations in healthcare. Telemedicine is the diagnosis and treatment of patients through telecommunication. The doctor and patient do not physically meet for these sessions. Liebhard discusses how telemedicine became popular during the COVID-19 pandemic and how corporate entities seeking profits have exploited the service. Telemedicine has advantages, but its accuracy is always going to be questionable. Patients are not the only victims of the system; physicians are not free to decide on the proper medical care to give patients. Liebhard counsels medical practitioners and patients to take an active role in the healthcare system and make the changes that will safeguard people's lives.
I love it when an author gives an honest and unbiased opinion on something that seems popular. Walking The Tightrope Is a ground-breaking book that will make you examine the telemedicine system. Wayne Liebhard uses layman’s terms to explain the medical jargon, making it an easy read. The message is loud and clear for patients, doctors, and medical corporate entities. Liebhard also uses quotes and reports to back up his points and give an accurate picture of the effects of telemedicine. I liked the case studies and anecdotes he utilizes to explain how the healthcare system works perfectly. For example, the story about your doctor checking the depth of the holes corporates will drill in the ice you will drive across was vivid and eye-opening to the situation in the medical sector. I hope many people will read this book and be enlightened on the correct steps to protect the healthcare system and receive proper care.
