Remote “over-the-shoulder” support is one-way providers are expanding healthcare accessibility and ensuring more patients can be seen, despite onsite staffing shortages. One example of successful virtual collaboration is radiology operations and command centers. Imaging experts connect with technologists at scan locations, increasing access to MRIs and CTs. Another example of virtual collaboration is tele-ICU programs. In tele-ICU programs, remote workers can gather data to monitor patients, predict possible medical emergencies and escalate care, if needed. Medical companies will continue to embrace new ways to collaborate in care and decision-making to address staffing issues.
