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.
