Routine Medical Care Can Wait, Nebraska Doctors Say, But Not Too Long

While most eyes these days are trained on the battle against the novel coronavirus, regular health care continues almost in the background.

Methodist Health System has been asking patients 65 and older who are stable and doing well to stay home. “These patients can easily wait three or four months to see their physician,” Todd Grages, president and CEO of Methodist Physicians Clinic, said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Grages said, patients who must be seen are getting the care they need. In addition to ramping up its telehealth services, the system’s health coaches and care navigators continue to contact those with chronic conditions.
