Healthcare Access During COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is difficult for healthcare patients to obtain their routine, everyday care. We hear from Diannah, whose young son has Cystic Fibrosis. Her family turned to telemedicine to consult with their physicians and meet their medical needs. Barry Jantz, head of the Grossmont Healthcare District in San Diego, will then join us. Barry explains how the Grossmont Hospital has worked to provide patients and their families stable access to routine medical care and secure appointments during this pandemic. Hospitals and clinics are creating new approaches to meet patients where they are at, while still providing quality healthcare.
