Northwell Health launches telehealth platform for SNFs

Northwell Health, New York’s largest health system, announced plans to launch a new telehealth platform, providing on-demand virtual care at two local SNFs.

The two facilities, Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation in the Bronx, and Glen Cove Nursing and Rehabilitation on Long Island will have access to the 23-hospital health system, allowing staff to connect with emergency care professionals, enabling SNF staff to provide emergency care to residents on site.

Northwell plans to expand the network to more facilities in the future.
