MDCalc Tools for Telehealth

Use of Telehealth is increasing dramatically. After scanning all the resources and calculators on MDCalc, here are the clinical decision tools that may be applied to Telehealth. If there is no calculator on MDCalc, other reliable resources are linked.


  1. All clinical decision tools require a thinking clinician with good clinical judgment.

  2. Most tools were not originally designed for Telehealth. Please read the “When to Use/Pearls and Pitfalls/Why Use” sections.

  3. Some tools cannot utilize all components with Telehealth (i.e. labs, SpO2, auscultation…). However, observable components may prove useful and may help you ask the right questions.

  4. JournalFeed is not responsible for how you use or apply any of the resources on this site, including this. See disclaimer.
