Industry Leans on Telehealth to Tackle COVID-19 Outbreak
Bright.md is now offering a free COVID-19 evaluation and screening tool to all hospitals in the US to tackle to spread of this virus. The tool will ensure patients’ access to advice from home, 24 hours a day, to allow patients to stay quarantined during the outbreak.
“The COVID-19 scare will likely cause an overwhelming demand for hospital facilities and clinical resources, making it difficult to treat patients who need care the most,” Ray Costantini, MD, Bright.md CEO and co-founder, said in the announcement.
“Crowded emergency departments also raise the risk of spreading viruses-whether it’s COVID-19 or the common flu- to sick people at the facility, as well as to the larger community.”
