Doctors in quarantine go online

Medical professionals in Renji Hospital’s west branch currently under quarantine are offering online outpatient services.

The first outpatient service was launched yesterday when a doctor under quarantine provided online consultations and diagnoses to patients in Renji’s Ningbo branch in Zhejiang Province.

The hospital is under closed-loop management and shut its outpatient services on Thursday when a worker tested positive for COVID-19.

However, many patients and medical professionals expressed concern about delayed outpatient services.

Dr Ma Xiong from Renji’s digestive disease department is quarantined at a hotel in the Pudong New Area for 14 days and is worried about his patients, many of whom require regular consultation.

Ma conducts outpatient services in both Shanghai and Ningbo, and about 400 patients are affected by his 14-day quarantine.

Via the new online outpatient service, Ma offered consultations to patients and prepared treatment plans with other doctors.
