During the COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine and virtual consultations have been rapidly implemented in paediatrics all over the world. Previous and current studies have shown satisfaction with telemedicine, especially from a parental perspective. The largest barrier for implementation is technology. Some studies have found telemedicine equal to in-person visits. Only few studies have measured clinical outcomes, and the perspective of the child and adolescents as well as healthcare personal is rarely examined. There is a need of developing guidelines and education in paediatric telemedicine, as argued in this review.
