COVID-19 Telehealth providing symptom screening and remote care management for vulnerable patients while reducing the risk of exposure for medical staff.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) APRIL 09, 2020
Wanda Health announces the addition of two new provider partners adding thousands of patients being supported by the company’s COVID-19 Telehealth programs. The Wanda Health programs are helping to provide symptom screening and remote care management for their vulnerable patients while simultaneously reducing the risk of exposure to their medical staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Telehealth and remote patient management have been successful strategies deployed in our care management model,” said Dr. Yeeny Gonzalez, CEO at PCP1st. “The COVID-19 Telehealth and chronic care programs unique to Wanda Health, allows us to rapidly expand the scope of pre-symptom screening preventing the spread of the virus and ongoing care management for those who have been diagnosed with the virus.”
The first provider is PCP1st, a Florida based experts in delivering customized care management for CINs, ACOs, MSOs. The second provider is Washington based Lake Chelan Community Hospital and Clinics providing care for patients in rural communities. These providers are using the COVID-19 Telehealth programs and Wanda Health’s other chronic disease management programs, to help extend their ability to readily provide patients and quarantined individuals with automated symptom screening and remote ongoing care management for those who are symptomatic or have tested positive to the virus.
“The patients and families we serve are unique in their care needs since many of them are remotely located and have challenges getting to our clinics or hospitals on a regular basis. The COVID-19 virus has exasperated an already challenging situation and telehealth is the solution for us,” stated Ray Eickmeyer, Director of EMS at Lake Chelan Community Hospital and Clinics. “The Wanda Telehealth programs for COVID-19 and ongoing chronic care management will improve our ability to care for patients and keep them safer and healthier at home.”
“It’s our responsibility to help providers, payers, and government entities expand their ability to protect and care for their patients while simultaneously providing a means to protect doctors, nurses and care team members from the harm that can come from increased exposure from the COVID-19 virus,” stated Bill Bassett, President of Wanda Health. “Our telehealth system is proving successful in helping doctors rapidly screen, evaluate, support, and manage the expectations of their patients and families. We are very proud to support these providers who are helping to flatten the curve.”
