During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, outpatient clinics were shut down to stem virus spread. Before COVID-19, Henry Ford Health System (Detroit, Michigan) used telemedicine within limited subsets of patients. After Henry Ford Health System clinics closed on March 17, 2020, the need to continue care necessitated a rapid adaptation of telemedicine. This presented an opportunity for widespread telemedicine use within the multidisciplinary head and neck oncology team. The purpose of this article is to describe the associations between patient demographic characteristics and socioeconomic disparities and the engagement in telemedicine during the pandemic.
