Mayo Clinic Talks COVID-19 Miniseries Episode 12: Harnessing Telehealth Without Sacrificing Safety
Mayo Clinic Talks Podcast #146
COVID-19 information evolves daily. The views and perspectives shared in these resources are presented based on information available at the time of recording.
How can telehealth be used to care for COVID-19 patients? How can we leverage telehealth to bring resources to rural facilities? Collaboration through telehealth can provide care where it’s convenient for patients, help offload cognitive burden from colleagues, and mitigate exposure and PPE challenges during this pandemic. Dr. Christopher Russi walks through how the process works and how it’s being leveraged at Mayo Clinic under typical circumstances and how it’s being utilized to triage and inform care for suspected and confirmed COVID-19 patients.
This course is intended for primary care providers: physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants
