Breakthrough of telemedicine through Corona?

More and more people are using video consultation hours, known as telemedicine, in view of the corona pandemic. What does this change?

In the wake of the pandemic, the rules for video treatments were relaxed so that not only doctors are allowed to use them. What is it like to do gymnastics exercises with the physiotherapist in front of the camera? How does video communication change a midwife's everyday life? And how does a dentist look into his patient's mouth from a distance?

Peter and Gina talk about this in this episode and ask themselves: What will this change for us in the long term? Are we seeing the ultimate breakthrough in telemedicine?
