VOLUNTEER CORNER - NANOS HEROES

Meet our April hero and Telemedicine guru, Dr. Melissa Ko! 

DR. MELISSA KO, NANOS AMBASSADOR, HIGHLIGHTING N-O ADVANCES COMMITTEE CHAIR AND NANOS BOARD MEMBER

Melissa Ko, MD, Chair, Highlighting N-O Advances Committee and NANOS Board Member

Ophthalmology or Neurology? Neurology

What was the best clinical pearl you learned in fellowship?
The 3 A’s in delivering care to patients and referring doctors: ability, affability, and availability. 

What are the top 3 things you’ve learned over the last 5 years?
1.  Never stop being curious and continue learning.
2.  Opportunities may come from unexpected places and to not be afraid to explore them.
3.  Personal difficulties/challenges are opportunities to examine one’s priorities and forge deeper connections to and with the things that truly matter.

Tell us about your involvement with NANOS! 
I attended a YONO forum years ago headed up by Janet Rucker, and that led to greater involvement with YONO, then advocacy, WIN, membership and so on. Connecting with NANOS members has been the greatest professional gift I have ever received.  The people of our organization are truly some of the smartest, hardest working, and kindest people I have had the privilege to work and collaborate with. That I also get to call many of you friends is a blessing.

What would you say to members who want to be more involved in NANOS?
Tell us asap! (The board or NANOS staff). We want to get you plugged into an area that matches your interest and our needs.

What do you know at this stage in your career that you wish you knew when you first joined NANOS?
1) That telemedicine was going to be a part of our daily reality.  It would be rather helpful about right now if we could have a way for patients to capture a fundus image from home and send it to us.
2) Keep exploring what you are most passionate about and align yourself with like minded people.  The rest will work itself out.


TELEMEDICINE IN QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Does NANOS have any resources available to members about Telemedicine in Neuro-Ophthalmology?

Yes, NANOS volunteers have developed a Telemedicine webpage to provide our members with some answers about telemedicine options available to neuro-ophthalmologists.  https://www.nanosweb.org/telemedicine

Is the symposium on Telemedicine presented at the NANOS 2020 Annual Meeting available for streaming?

Yes, the symposium entitled Telemedicine 20/20 in 2020: How Far Have We Come, Where Are We Headed and How Is It Relevant to Neuro-Ophthalmology is available on demand on NOVEL.

Are there any webinars about telemedicine? 

Here's the link to the Webinar: Outpatient Telemedicine Billing and Coding in the Age of COVID-19 that was presented by Dr. Melissa Ko on March 18.

Are there any apps that can be used for telemedicine services?

HHS has a list of examples of apps that can be used for telemedicine services during this time.

Are there any forms that can help me with providing telemedicine services?

The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) has sample forms that institutions have donated to figure out consents, documentation, etc.

Are there any telemedicine data sheets?

The AAN and AAO have released telemedicine data sheets to help with figuring out the coding stuff - if you see a discrepancy between what I've said previously and what these say, probably should err on the side of what those resources say (they've had their billing experts review it, and I've been mostly trying to keep up with the updates in between clinic and trying to triage my schedule).

How do I bill for telemedicine services?
