Remote recovery program allows those battling COVID-19 to heal at home

[WCCO-TV & KARE 11, December 17, 2020] Hundreds of patients who would otherwise be battling COVID-19 in the hospital are instead getting better at home.

Rachel Kuhnly is a strategy and business development consultant for Allina Health.

“We’re freeing up hospital beds for the sickest patients and those other patients get to recover in the comfort of their own homes with their loved ones,” Kuhnly said.

Kuhnly runs Allina‘s Hospital Home Care Program. Developed before the pandemic by her Master’s program at the University of Minnesota, they believed treating sicknesses — such as COPD, pneumonia, and some heart problems — is possible at home.
