Dr. Hargobind Khurana, Medical Director of Telehealth Acute Care, and Sherene Schlegel, Executive Director, Telehealth Clinical Operations at Providence St. Joseph Health (PSJH), described how PSJH is using digital health technology to monitor at risk and COVID-19 positive patients at home.

An auto-updated triage dashboard helps the care team prioritize patients so that the nurses can focus their time on the neediest cases.
