As COVID-19 began to spread across the Northeast, Penn State Health, a multi-hospital health system serving central Pennsylvania, saw in-person visits to its hospitals and clinics drop by 80%. In a matter of weeks, the health system scaled its virtual visit program to quickly expand access to patients. This included implementing scheduled virtual visits across nearly every department—from dermatology to internal medicine—to ensure the continuation of care as facilities closed their doors.
