In response to the COVID-19 global health crisis, the healthcare industry is finding ways to innovate its practice and engage with patients from a distance. Virtual care is playing a much larger role in triaging patients to promote social distancing and keep hospitals and clinics from becoming overwhelmed. In a time of rapid expansion and the need for quick deployment, some very simple design tips can help you make the most of your virtual care spaces. This webinar will explore those innovations that are being deployed for the near term and for the future.
