Clinical Consultant – Briggs Healthcare

The May 28, 2020 LTC Office Hours was a great session!  The subject was testing considerations and cohorting of COVID-19 patients in LTC.  This link will take you to the presentation handout.  The presenter was Nimalie Stone, MD from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  If you’ve attended other CMS or Telligen QIO-sponsored webinars, she will be familiar to you.  Great presenter with a wealth of knowledge we can all use right now!  Below are two of the slides during her presentation:

The recording from today’s presentation will be posted on the Telligen QIN-QIO Events Archive page    next week.  While you’re on that page, check out the other recordings and handouts from past webinars.  These QIO offerings are excellent and questions are welcome.   Telligen is the QIN-QIO for the states of Colorado, Illinois, Iowa and Oklahoma.
