Telehealth Admissions for Your Hospice-Eligible Patients
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, patients with advanced illnesses who may be hospice-eligible are at a higher risk to have significantly worse outcomes if they become infected and are more likely to die in the hospital.
In an effort to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission, Congress and CMS are allowing healthcare providers to use telehealth to ensure safe, continued care and access to patients and families.
VITAS Healthcare is ready and committed to support the care of these patients.
