UnityPoint Health – Trinity will partner with three Quad City skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) to pilot an emergency telehealth program directly connecting 300 SNF residents ages 65 and older to Emergency Department (ED) providers from the safety of their own residence. The goal of the project is to prevent unnecessary ED visits and hospitalizations among SNF residents, and to protect them from COVID-19 exposure and spread.
