“…17,18 In Europe, the telemedicine market has tripled from almost $4 billion to $13 billion in 2019 alone, which is a very significant and different growth from that of other countries with less significant economic resources. 19 This increase can also be seen throughout Latin America, where both public and private health centers are increasing their telemedicine services, reducing the cost of care, reaching a greater number of people, and avoiding crowds of people in health services. 20 The main objective of this research is to examine the experiences and perspectives of rural physiotherapists and their preferences regarding telehealth strategies.…”

This required the implementation of strategies to respond efficiently to the health emergency.…”

“…É importante demarcar que a telemedicina trouxe uma via de mão dupla porque, ao mesmo tempo em que estudos apontam os êxitos e boas percepções do atendimento pelo usuário do serviço (LARA et al, 2022;NIEBLAS et al, 2022), também pode privar essas mesmas pessoas do melhor tratamento médico disponível.
