Five Minutes in Healthcare is where I discuss current events with some of the industry’s most influential leaders, as well as innovative thinkers who are working to meet the challenges of the novel coronavirus.
In this installment, I check in with Dr. Craig Escudé, president of Health Risk Screening, about the challenges of providing care to individuals with an intellectual or developmental disability (IDD) and how new tools can support those efforts. Recognizing the needs of patients with IDDs is especially important during COVID-19.
