Benefits for using telehealth during COVID19 outbreak
• Promotes the practice of social distancing to reduce spread – shifting visits that do not require in-person/face-to-face limits the physical contact between staff and patients and can reduce risk of spread in high-volume/traffic areas such as waiting rooms.
• Enables you to explore options for continued engagement and reduced potential for exposure for those who are considered most vulnerable to COVID19.
• Reduces the likelihood of patients participating in activities/behaviors that could increase risk of exposure, such as use of public transportation to attend appointments.
