While not all patients with COVID-19 will require hospitalization, many are seeking care and medical advice from their primary providers. With public health measures limiting travel and clinical visits, the question facing many healthcare organizations is: how do they safely provide care and monitor patients with COVID-19?

Nadir Bhuiyan, Ravindra Ganesh, and Ryan Hurt about the Mayo Clinic COVID-19 Frontline Care Team and their efforts to establish a telemedicine practice for patients with COVID-19.
