          Abstract

          The COVID-19 pandemic presents significant challenges to face-to-face communication with people residing in post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) settings. Telemedicine is an alternative, but facility staff may be over-burdened with the management of the equipment. Here we introduce the use of a mobile HIPPA-compliant telepresence robot (MTR) to bridge this barrier which may be beneficial to reimagine options for PALTC in the future.

          Abstract

          This pragmatic innovation demonstrates use of a robot to provide clinical PALTC telepresence with minimal staff burden during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
