Access Physicians featured in COVID-19 units
The country’s embrace of telemedicine is one positive outcome in what otherwise has been a very difficult year. While much of the attention centers around consumer-focused telehealth systems serving minor illnesses and behavioral health issues, telemedicine is integral at bringing highly specialized physicians to the bedside to care for more patients, many of whom are severely ill.
Recent news coverage in the Dallas-Fort Worth market featuring the Parkland Health and Hospital System focuses on its COVID units and operations in the face of ongoing surges of patients. The Access Physicians pulmonary and critical care telemedicine program has been there from the beginning to deliver world-class specialists where they’re desperately needed.
