Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the need for regular care continues
Even under a stay-at-home order, patients still require access to the care they need. That’s why Agnesian HealthCare, a member of SSM Health, continues to offer high-quality care to patients and communities.
Telehealth appointments allow patients to connect with an Agnesian HealthCare provider without leaving their home. During these appointments, providers speak with patients by video chat or phone call to diagnose, treat, educate and prescribe appropriate medications. A Telehealth visit is a great option for a variety of conditions including some follow-up visits. While this option saves patients time through visits right in the comfort of their home, it also reduces the risk of potential exposure during these uncertain times.
“The safety of our patients, employees and providers is our top priority,” according to Michael DeGere, DPM, FACHE, vice president - Population Health Management, Agnesian HealthCare. “A Telehealth visit enables us to continue practicing physical distancing while also ensuring our patients continue to receive the care they need to stay healthy and to manage any chronic conditions they may have.”
New and existing Agnesian HealthCare patients who’d like to schedule a Telehealth visit should call their provider. To find an Agnesian HealthCare provider near you, visit agnesian.com/find-care.
