We have been fortunate to have been able to share a number of best practice stories throughout the Covid-19 crisis and this week’s podcast is no exception. Ben is joined by Dr Lorenz Kemper, a GP who co-founded MedLink Solutions, a unique online platform which allows practices to remotely manage reviews of patients with long term conditions and chronic disease. Lorenz explains how the system was launched, how it works, and the impact it is having - allowing clinical teams to reach previously inactive patients, creating greater flexibility in management of clinical time and crucially, enabling practices to continue vital routine care for their patients safely.
