To put it bluntly, the coronavirus pandemic has changed everything. As we navigate new safety procedures and find moments of “normalcy”, there is another impending threat to our healthcare system: the flu. Even though the healthcare community is much more familiar with the influenza virus, its symptoms are similar to COVID-19, making prevention and diagnosis of the flu or COVID-19 an even more critical task.
Accurate and up-to-date information are our biggest weapons against both of these viruses. Outcome Health is committed to ensuring our point-of-care platform delivers such resources so that physicians and patients can access what they must know to stay healthy.
Patient Education at the Point of Care
Symptoms for the seasonal flu and COVID-19 are alike, so education distinguishing the two viruses is incredibly important. Patient education at the point of care can keep our healthcare system from being overwhelmed. Flu awareness and prevention content is currently playing across Outcome Health’s network of Waiting Room TVs, Exam Room Tablets, and Exam Room Wallboards. Our platform is also running content about hygiene protocols that work to stave off both viruses.
