WTEN: St. Peter’s Expands Virtual Health Services
WTEN published a story on the expansion of Virtual Health services at St. Peter’s Health Partners. The online service is open to both existing as well as new patients and uses secure telehealth technology to safely connect providers with patients using audio and video from the patient’s own home. Connecting providers with patients during the COVID-19 outbreak has never been more important.
From the story:
“We have seen a significant decline in visits to our medical practices, particularly primary care,” said Kellie Valenti, president of St. Peter’s Health Partners Medical Associates. “That decline makes clear many of our patients could be neglecting potentially preventable conditions and diseases that if left uncontrolled, could have devastating consequences. VirtualHealth restores this critical communication and puts a patient’s health care in the palm of their hand.”
