Dr. Judd Hollander, Professor of Emergency Medicine and Associate Dean for Strategic Health Initiatives, explains how JeffConnect™, Jefferson’s Virtual On-Demand Care app, will help patients avoid traveling for non-emergent cases that can be handled virtually by a Jefferson physician. The launch comes at a perfect time for Philadelphia residents and visitors, as they prepare for limited travel routes and options throughout the city during the Papal Visit.
“Our goal is to make sure everyone can get the care they need,” said Dr. Hollander. “When you’re not sure if what you’re experiencing requires a trip to the hospital, you can call us. We’ll either be able to treat you virtually, or offer other options that may be more convenient for you than an emergency department visit.”
