Telehealth & Business Practices

As pediatricians and pediatric specialists on the front line, we must encourage physical distancing by keeping both sick and well kids at home when they don’t need to be seen. Phone triage and telehealth is our first line of defense to flatten the curve. We also must continue to re-structure our workflow and practices to keep sick and well families apart, and to keep our staff and community safe.
