Using Telehealth to Monitor Patients and Protect Staff During COVID-19

Caregility Vice President of Clinical Solutions Wendy Deibert recently sat down with Healthcare IT Today editor Colin Hung to discuss ways hospitals are using telehealth to monitor COVID-19 patients while keeping healthcare workers safe.

Virtual care recently skyrocketed to the top of the priority list for healthcare organizations as they sought ways to safely engage patients without contributing to the spread of the virus. Hospitals continue to ramp up telehealth services to:

    • Triage suspected COVID-19 patient cases
    • Monitor hospitalized patients while limiting COVID-19 exposure
    • Continue delivery of non-COVID-19 related clinical support

“I think it’s about getting the resource to patients no matter where they are. Clinicians of all kinds and types are spread so thin,” Deibert says. “Being able to scale and see more patients via virtual medicine is huge.”
