Remote monitoring of COVID-19 patients
October 5, 2020

When patients are diagnosed with COVID-19, they are required to self-isolate until the infection is cleared. Some patients will be at risk for complications, and may need comprehensive support at home. Providing that support is the goal of Mayo Clinic's remote patient monitoring team.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Ryan T. Hurt, a Mayo Clinic general internal medicine specialist, explains how remote monitoring benefits patients. Dr. Hurt helped form the team that manages positive COVID-19 test results at Mayo Clinic in Rochester and the Mayo Clinic Health System.
