At Synergy Diagnostics, we believe no patient should miss out on the opportunity to get essential medical testing. We are working diligently to rise to the needs of our patients and physicians to ensure no patient must go without, even in the midst of a pandemic.
Hospitals and physician practices have cancelled most out-patient and in-patient EEG testing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most have switched to telemedicine with zero physician face to face interaction. With healthcare professionals around the world looking for telemedicine alternatives in response to the Coronavirus, Neurologists and Physicians have found solutions to protect their patients and so have we. Synergy Diagnostics at-home EEG’s are available to anyone in the Houston area and surrounding cities, allowing patients to stay where they are safest during this time.
Here are a few of the measures we are taking to ensure the safety of our patients and employees:
• All of our technologists are screened regularly with temperature checks daily before being cleared to work to keep patients safe
• All technicians are using PPE (personal protective equipment) including masks, gloves, and gowns
• All equipment is thoroughly disinfected before and after each test with medical-grade sanitizer
• All patients are asked pre-screening questions before a technician goes to the home, as well as tested with a forehead thermometer before EEG begins
Being at home is the best place to be during this time. Shouldn’t testing be done there too? Results are fast, precise, and electronically delivered to the physician for quick results. Rest assured that we are doing everything we can to prevent the spread of infection and keep your families safe and healthy!
