Shadow Health Use Cases Before and During COVID-19

“Shadow Health provides many helpful tactics to help assess a patient in real life. I tried to assess someone before I even took a look at Health Assessment and I was clueless.

The way in which we need to addressed certain questions and situations will be different. I appreciate the practice.”
