Chest pain patients wait an average of 3.5 hours to 7 days before seeking care. Stroke patients wait an average of 1.5 hours before seeking care. Never tell patients to “hang up and call 911” themselves. Keep control of the situation and handoff the care yourself. Listen to a few 911 recordings of medical practices with emergencies during telehealth.
Examples of Hybrid Medical Practices:
You may only see patients over telehealth part-time and see patients in person the rest of the time. Hybrid programs activate emergencies during telemedicine, for emergency voicemails, and SMS text based care.
