Allen Broome, Pharm.D., the director of health system pharmacy at USA Health, reflects on the Pharmacy Residency Program's first-year achievements.
What is a Virtual Appointment?
With the safety and convenience of patients in mind during the COVID-19 outbreak, USA Health is now providing virtual visits for new and established patients with basic medical needs. The virtual visits can be for initial consultations, post-operation follow-ups, and other health needs that don’t require an in-person visit.
Virtual visits are patient appointments conducted by using audio-visual technologies such as a smartphone with video capabilities that allow a patient and a healthcare provider to interact without physical contact. Participants must have an email address and computer or phone with a camera to take part.
