COVID-19 has certainly presented numerous challenges to Naturopathic Doctors. One of the largest hurtles presented is how to deliver patient care in the safest possible way.
It is a well-known fact that the use of PPE and Social Distancing go a long way in preventing the spread of the virus but that does not lend itself very well to actually providing medical care to your patients.
So how do you provide these services yet maintain a safe environment for not only you and your staff but your patients as well.
The answer lies in the use of telemedicine along with conventional in office/home visits when possible.
National Fire & Marine Insurance Company, a division of MedPro Group, Inc. has recognized the need for Telemedicine by not only providing you coverage when utilizing this means of care delivery, but also by providing eight Risk Management documents to assist you in designing and implementing telemedicine into your everyday practice.
These documents are free of charge to everyone and can be viewed/downloaded/printed. You can find them at www.aegisnd.com under Resources – Telemedicine.
