Confluence Health will be offering telemedicine care to patients during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, limiting their patients’ risk of coronavirus exposure.
Confluence Health has partnered with Caregility, a clinical collaboration and communications company to develop a ‘virtual visit service’ that will give patients the ability to consult with their primary care physician or specialty care provider via phone or by video conference.
Confluence Health says patients will have access to a wide range of services without having to travel to one of their healthcare facilities, limiting their risk of potential COVID-19 exposure.
According to Confluence, providers may be able to treat conditions patients would currently need to see their provider for, such as:
sore throat or nasal congestion
bites or stings
Bladder infections and more
“Addressing the threat of Coronavirus has changed the way we live and work in the short term. Addressing your health care needs shouldn’t have to wait, and now, you don’t have to. Confluence Health is proud to launch an innovative solution to providing health care services wherever you are,” Andrew Canning, Director of Marketing & Communications at Confluence Health stated.
