P015 - Implementing Telemedicine Practices for Mechanical Circulatory Support Patients During COVID-19 Global Pandemic


When the COVID Pandemic hit New Jersey, it was no longer safe for Mechanical Circulatory Support patients to receive routine follow up care in the hospital-based clinic. The MCS team at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center implemented telemedicine practices to provide safe, uninterrupted, care for this medically complex patient population; a novel change in practice.
