Harnessing telehealth without sacrificing safety (Podcast Episode 12)

Guest: Christopher S. Russi, D.O. (@csrussi)

Host: Amit K. Ghosh, M.D., M.B.A. (@AmitGhosh006)

How can telehealth be used to care for people with COVID-19? 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. Christopher S. Russi, D.O., walks through how the process works, how it's being leveraged at Mayo Clinic under typical circumstances, and how it's being utilized to triage and inform care for patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19.
