TelAbortion study featured in Cosmopolitan

02/08/2018

Gynuity’s innovative study on telemedicine* provision of medical abortion is featured in the March 2018 issue of Cosmopolitan. The article, “Abortion’s Next Frontier: Video Chat”, is available digitally here.

The TelAbortion study evaluates the use of telemedicine for providing a medical abortion to women who may have difficulty getting to a clinic where abortion is provided. The time, travel costs, lost wages, and childcare arrangements involved in accessing this basic reproductive right can be a substantial hardship for many women in the United States. Even though millions of women have used abortion pills, and their safety is well-established, the medications are not available in pharmacies (even with a prescription) and instead must be obtained directly from providers. Through the TelAbortion study, women receive the medications by mail and are followed by their providers remotely.

[*Telemedicine is the remote delivery of health care services and clinical information using a variety of telecommunications including phone, video, and the internet.]
