StartUPDATES: New developments from healthcare startups
To help meet the demands of possible novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreaks in local communities across the nation, Bright.md is offering a free COVID-19 evaluation, screening and escalation tool to all hospitals in the U.S. In line with the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) recommendations to leverage telehealth to mitigate the spread of the virus, the free screening tool will allow patients to get advice from home, 24 hours a day, steering them away from emergency departments or urgent care clinics unless the severity of their condition warrants in-person care.
