Renal Telenutrition for Kidney Health: Leveraging Telehealth and Telemedicine for Nutritional Assessment and Dietary Management of Patients With Kidney Disorders

Telehealth refers to the delivery of healthcare services from a distance using telecommunication techniques such as video and audio, mostly in real time but across different locations. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, mandated social distancing has led to reinvigoration and colossal expansion of telehealth. Telehealth is expected to continue through 2021 and even after COVID-19 pandemic is overcome, given its many advantages including its exceptional level of patients' and providers' convenience and high level of efficiency, while reimbursements remain comparable to in-person visits.
