2020 Beneficiary: Telehealth

 

The beneficiary for Dreambuilders this year is Telehealth at Virginia Mason. Telehealth is the remote delivery of healthcare services using technology to enhance patient access, by moving healthcare from traditional bricks and mortar (hospitals and clinics) to virtual care that can happen in a patient’s home or in rural settings in local health care facilities. For those who are phsyically challenged by mobility issues, who live in rural areas without specialty services, who have chornic conditions that hard to manage, or who unable to drive to regional medical centers or downtown Seattle, Telehealth will be life changing. Telehealth can also save crucial time in making diagnosis. It will provide the right care, at the right time, with the right team.
