In the age of COVID-19 and telehealth, increasingly students are able to see clinicians via a video chat from a web browser or mobile device.
Goals and Objectives
Reduce the number of onsite or offsite clinic visits for consultations, also reduce emergency room (ER) visits for nonurgent care. Increase compliance for chronic condition follow-up care. Mitigate students’ and medical providers’ risk of transmitting COVID-19 between each party by minimizing exposure to one another.
Videoconferencing, mobile, cloud, and IoT; integration with electronic health records (EHRs); connectivity with remote health monitoring devices
Use Case Summary
The ability to see a clinician anytime, anywhere, and anyplace from a secure device using a combination of video, mobile, cloud, and IoT technologies will improve access to care for healthcare services ranging from urgent care to managing chronic conditions and receiving behavioral health therapy.
