The Arc of Essex County Leads Telehealth Session at Annual SHA Conference

December 4th, 2020

The Arc of Essex County’s Chief Operating Officer Kathy Hinnigan-Cohen and Senior Director of Residential Services Rebecca Lorusso recently led a breakout session about telehealth alongside StationMD during the Supporting Housing Association of New Jersey’s annual conference.  During the virtual workshop session, they discussed how The Arc continues to provide quality medical care to vulnerable populations using telemedicine services.

In discussing The Arc’s use of Station MD services, Hinnigan-Cohen and Lorusso highlighted how the agency continues to minimize risk and improve health outcomes during the health crisis and beyond. They highlighted how the immediate access to physicians 24/7, has created a safer, often superior, and far less disruptive medical solution than a traumatic trip to the ER, urgent care or doctor's office and enhanced the value of care provided by an organization.
