Alexandra Walton of Sound Physicians Joins SOC Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jason Hallock

RESTON, Va., March 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --


The CDC is recommending healthcare providers shift their delivery models to telemedicine, when possible, to protect hospital staff so they can continue to effectively serve patients.


To assist in bringing this recommendation to fruition, SOC Telemed, the largest acute (hospital-based) telemedicine provider in the US, is hosting an educational webinar to address how hospital-based telemedicine can be used to mobilize physicians for remote work. 


Joined by Alexandra Walton, COO of Telemedicine for Sound Physicians, a physician-founded and led organization providing services across the acute episode of care, the webinar will cover key information every health system administrator should consider to ensure continuity of care for patients and safety for practitioners.


Webinar Topics Include:


How acute telemedicine can be used to ensure continuity of care pre and post potential COVID-19 patients arriving in your ER


Why protecting your physicians should be your #1 priority while facing the COVID-19 pandemic



How acute telemedicine can be deployed quickly in your emergency department and other locations in your hospital(s)


How implementing an acute telemedicine platform, custom-built for hospital workflows, can allow your specialty physicians to work from home and still serve your patients


Over the last 15 years, SOC Telemed has delivered more than one million consults for acute-care hospitals for clinically-complex specialties such as ICU, hospitalist, cardiology, neurology, and psychiatry.
