OSF HealthCare using remote monitoring program honed during COVID-19 pandemic to manage RSV patients
The respiratory virus RSV hit earlier than usual this winter. Coupled with a wave of influenza cases, central Illinois hospitals have struggled to manage limited bed space.
OSF HealthCare has launched a remote patient monitoring program for people with RSV. It's similar to the model the hospital system leveraged during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this edition of Sound Health, OSF HealthCare chief operating officer Dr. Mike Cruz and OSF OnCall Digital Health Chief Medical Officer Dr. Matt Gorman discuss the respiratory illness environment — and how the new RSV monitoring program helps patients manage illness at home in this conversation with Tim Shelley, starting with Dr. Cruz.
