Cathy goes on to say that getting patients the care they need in the location that best suits them is one of the things that make Joslin Everywhere so exciting. “With the addition of the SBR virtual visit platform to Joslin Everywhere we are able to use live video conferencing to have providers conduct their appointments with the patient in the comfort of their own home.”
“The SBR virtual visit system supports Joslin’s strategic efforts to extend its specialist reach across their network, and increase patient access to care by integrating virtual visits into the Joslin patient portal,” explained Paul Penta, Joslin Everywhere Program Manager at Joslin. “SBR makes virtual visits easy to use, the technology moves to the background and opens up access to care and specialized expertise to anyone, regardless of where they are in place and time.”
