Published in JAMA Neurol. 2013 Mar Dr. Ray Dorsey, Associate Professor of Neurology, Director of the Movement Disorders Center, Johns Hopkins University concludes that web-based videoconferencing and telemedicine for the provision of specialty care at home is feasible, effective and provides value to patients, and may offer similar clinical benefit to that of in-person care in  Parkinson Disease (PD). This indicates that telemedicine is feasible for other movement Disorders and neurodegenerative Diseases.
