Parkview offers resources for COVID-19

Posted: Thursday, March 12, 2020

Focused on patient safety and ease of access, Parkview Health is offering resources for information, screening and treatment of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). An informational web page and phone screenings have been set up to help direct patients to appropriate care.

People with symptoms or concerns specific to COVID-19 should use one of these options:

Visit parkview.com/covid19screening for detailed self-triage information

Call 1-877-PPG-TODAY (1-877-774-8632) for a free phone screening

Both options are available 24/7 and offer prompt guidance while limiting exposure to others. These free, easy-to-use resources provide patients with recommended actions, including whether they should stay home or seek treatment with a provider.

COVID-19 can cause fever, cough and difficulty breathing and spreads through close contact with others. The majority of people with COVID-19 have minor symptoms and do not require medical care or testing.

Patients with health concerns unrelated to COVID-19 may wish to use telehealth resources to reduce to their exposure risk. Parkview offers two mobile applications, Parkview MyChart and Parkview OnDemand.

Patients with an existing MyChart account can login and choose “Talk to a Provider” to start a virtual visit. Parkview OnDemand is available to patients anywhere in the United States and takes minutes to set up.
