How the Virtual Hospital can help protect your staff

The Virtual Hospital can extend clinical capabilities while preserving PPE.

An estimated number of 12 healthcare personnel / per day could be required to care for an unstable patient.

A recent study of virtual care concluded that the ability for intensivists and other specialists to consult or evaluate certain patients remotely could:

  • help to conserve PPE
  • limit exposures bidirectionally
  • allow for a centralized consult workforce to service multiple hospitals
  • facilitate rapid triage and disposition of non COVID-19 emergencies during this crisis

Virtual care can help minimize the burden of exposure to those specialists with the benefit of no additional strain on PPE supply.
