Today, telehealth options have the potential to help take pressure off of healthcare systems that are overtaxed by COVID-19. According to the CDC, changes in the way that health care is delivered during this pandemic are needed to reduce staff exposure to ill persons, preserve personal protective equipment (PPE) and minimize the impact of patient surges on facilities. Healthcare systems have had to adjust the way they triage, evaluate and care for patients using methods that do not rely on in-person services [6]. Telehealth services help provide necessary care to patients while minimizing the transmission risk of COVID-19 to healthcare personnel and patients.

"By expanding our telehealth solution, we hope to give providers an option to engage in population health and support patients closer to home in lower cost settings that can lead to the potential for more follow-up visits, and the opportunity for clinicians to identify at-risk patients earlier and manage health escalations," said Vitor Rocha, Chief Market Leader for Philips North America. "Not only does it mean the convenience of shorter drive times for patients, it could mean better health outcomes and a safer environment for providers as people benefit from getting the quality care they need in the right place at the right time."
