WHAT IS A TRIAGE NURSE?
A telephone triage nurse is a nursing professional that helps patients determine what type of care they need over the phone. They often provide a cursory assessment of the patients and help them decide if they need to seek emergency treatment, make an appointment with a doctor, or treat themselves at home.
GBUAHN and GBUACO are embarking on a system that puts health care literally in the hands of their patients.
Pioneering what is to come in the world of medicine, the two organizations will be utilizing Teletriage – which consists of a remote medical exam that imitates an in-office visit.
