Atrium Health’s COVID-19 Virtual Hospital
April 1, 2020, 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT
Scott Rissmiller, MD, EVP & Chief Physician Executive, Atrium Health. Atrium Health announced a new and innovative program to help appropriate patients who have been diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) to receive safe and convenient treatment while they recover, in the comfort of their home. Atrium Health’s COVID-19 Virtual Hospital is designed to protect the patient’s health, the health of others and to prevent further spread of the infection. Atrium Health’s COVID-19 Virtual Hospital will use telemedicine to treat patients who don’t require the level of care such as in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU), by remotely monitoring vital signs 24-hours a day. This virtual hospital can attend to two levels of care, observation care and acute care. The care team can monitor blood pressure, oxygen levels and temperature while the patient safely recovers in their own home.
