The COVID-19 crisis has forced significant changes to the practice of medicine. One is the accelerated development and application of telemedicine, particularly in chronic neurological disorders. This opinion piece from leaders in the field reviews the major applications and the challenges, including those that will be associated with continued deployment and potential expansion after the current crisis.
This is likely to be a useful and timely read for practitioners.

The unfolding coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is transforming neurological care more than any other crisis in modern history. Social distancing and quarantine have cut off access to routine medical care for numerous individuals with neurological diseases. Many are at increased risk when coinfected with COVID-19 because of their advanced age (eg, those with Alzheimer disease), comorbid conditions (eg, those with respiratory impairment in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), or immunosuppressive treatments (eg, those with multiple sclerosis). The current COVID-19 crisis is catalyzing the use of telemedicine and remote home monitoring to ascertain a continuation of care for these vulnerable populations.
