The OnPatient team is taking the impact of COVID-19 seriously. As more cases continue to surface throughout the US, we’ve moved quickly to prioritize software updates and partnerships that our practices are most in need of right now. By empowering providers throughout the country, we hope this allows patients to remain healthy and fully supported during this time.
We will continue to monitor updates from the CDC and medical advisors, which will be reflected on our website.
Ask Your Doctor About Virtual Care Options
We know how important it is to maintain your health during this time while also taking into account the risk of exposure to yourself and medical staff. Many practices are taking advantage of telemedicine. If you are interested in scheduling a virtual appointment with your doctor, ask if they currently use DrChrono Telehealth.
Stay Informed on Prevention & Tracking Updates
We strongly encourage everyone, from providers to business owners and patients, to stay up-to-date on the latest information from the CDC regarding prevention and social gatherings. You should also check your state or county’s public health website for updates on rules and restrictions in your area, as some areas have already implemented shelter-in-place orders. Experts urge individuals to minimize exposure by washing hands often, regularly cleaning surfaces, avoiding frequent contact with eyes and mouth and avoiding all social gatherings over 10 people.
You can also track the location of confirmed and active cases within the United States using the Johns Hopkins Interactive tracking map. However, due to a shortage of testing supplies, even the most reliable sources of information may not accurately portray the full scope of the virus.
