COVID-19 is not the most deadly virus, but it’s certainly set its place in history. Everything from healthcare to daycare has been altered.

Perhaps equally problematic, symptoms can remain minor and enable spread.
Technology and healthcare are becoming increasingly intertwined with the arrival of COVID-19. As clinics close and shelter in place orders expand, patients understandably demand solutions. Though everyday life has changed, their chronic conditions remain. These conditions cannot be set aside until crisis resolves and must have the attention warranted to avoid worsening outcomes.
