As the corona virus (COVID-19) affects practices nationwide, Circlelink’s tele-nursing team (100% Registered Nurses) is here to help with the worried well and sick at home.
Our RNs triage Chronic Care Management (CCM) patients, or others, answering questions and referring them to appropriate care settings before patients physically visit practices or take up staff time with calls.
After ~5 years working with patients most at-risk for COVID-19 (Medicare patients with multiple conditions), we assembled the following COVID-19 exposure protocol and content base, shared with our healthcare provider customers on 3/12.
We partnered with ClearTriage for their gold standard Schmitt-Thompson protocols and evidence-based content, including below COVID-19 exposure protocol.
Hopefully, below will help any practices and healthcare providers dealing with potential COVID-19 patients. Our team is humbled to work with these healthcare providers/heroes.
If you think CircleLink’s tele-nurses or platform can be helpful, please reach out to email@example.com.
