"The book is written for individuals at any level of training in health care, though it will likely be more easily understood and utilized by those at the resident or practitioner level who are developing their own practices. It is specifically targeted to orthopedic surgery and sports medicine with specific examples ... . This book is very timely in its publication and will be important as many practitioners hone their telemedicine services, particularly in orthopedics and sports medicine."
