Hybrid License and Clinical Services

You may also be interested in leveraging the efficiencies of remote care to the benefit of the patients in your region but may wonder whether your bench of specialists is deep enough to sustain your own operation. Mass General offers a hybrid configuration where you build your own program on our experience and decide what is your preference for the involvement of your local specialists. For example, having them provide the daytime coverage to your TeleNeurology or TeleICU program may be your preferred route. And at night, you may leverage remote coverage from Mass General specialists, all integrated into the operational and technology frameworks that ensure consistency and satisfaction on the receiving end.
