MyCatholicDoctor, a national telehealth organization, announced that it is working with key stakeholders across healthcare to ensure telehealth is seen and used appropriately as a first line of defense to mitigate the impact and spread of COVID-19. As recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) within their Preparing Communities for Potential Spread of COVID-19 action plan, leveraging telehealth tools to direct people to the right level of healthcare for their medical needs should be part of first responders’, healthcare providers’, and health systems’ response to this global outbreak.

Why It Matters

“Telehealth is ideal for the initial screening of patients with respiratory conditions that are common in COVID-19,” said Kathleen Berchelmann, MD, Chief Medical Officer at MyCatholicDoctor. “Our board-certified telehealth providers are trained to screen patients, assign risk, answer questions, prescribe medications, and recommend the next steps a patient should take. For most patients we can help the patient heal at home. However, when necessary, we can facilitate a “white glove” transfer for in-person care. This method of transfer avoids additional possible exposures and allows patients rapid-access to in-person care when necessary.

As Catholic Christians we highly value life, recognizing that each human is made in the image and likeness of God. Preventing the spread of illness is fundamental to promoting a culture of life.”
