Trump’s physician declines to provide key information on his health

White House physician Sean Conley on Monday ducked repeated questions from reporters about President TrumpDonald John TrumpQuestions remain unanswered as White House casts upbeat outlook on Trump’s COVID-19 fight White House staffers get email saying to stay home if they experience coronavirus symptoms White House says ‘appropriate precautions’ were taken for Trump’s outing to see supporters MORE‘s health and the timeline of his COVID-19 infection, even as he insisted the president is well enough to leave the hospital and return to the White House.

Conley, who has come under scrutiny for offering conflicting statements about the president’s health in recent days, briefed reporters hours before Trump is expected to depart Walter Reed hospital, where he’s been treated for the virus for three days.

Conley noticeably refused to answer multiple questions about when Trump last tested negative for the virus, something White House officials have similarly declined to share in recent days.

“I don’t want to go backwards. The contact tracing as I understand is being done,” Conley said.

Pressed again on why he would not disclose when Trump last tested negative, Conley smiled, saying “everyone wants that.” 

The timing of Trump’s last negative test could be critical in determining how many people he may have exposed to COVID-19 and when it would be safe for him to interact with others again.

The White House has refused to provide a clear timeline, however, only saying Trump received an initial positive test after returning from a fundraiser in New Jersey on Thursday. Trump tweeted early Friday morning that he and the first lady had tested positive for the virus.

Conley asserted that it is safe for the president to return to the White House on Monday, citing his improved vitals and clinical evaluations in defending the decision. No doctor disagreed with the decision to allow Trump to leave the hospital, Conley added.

“If we can get through to Monday with him remaining the same or improving better yet, then we will all take that final deep sigh of relief,” he said.

But the physician declined to go into detail on key aspects of Trump’s health, leaving a murky picture of how serious the president’s illness may be.

Asked if chest scans showed any inflammation in Trump’s lungs, a common effect of moderate or severe cases of COVID-19, Conley cited HIPAA laws that protect patient privacy.

“We’ve done routine standard imaging. I’m just not at liberty to discuss,” he said.

Asked if the president’s blood work had turned up any abnormal results, Conley again cited the privacy law, saying it “precludes me from going into too much depth.”

Asked about the regiment of therapeutics doctors administered in recent days, which included an experimental antibody cocktail, the antiviral drug remdesivir and the steroid dexamethasone, Conley would not divulge the decisionmaking process.

“There are dozens of therapies that we were made aware of, that we considered, that we discussed and debated and looked at the existing literature on,” he said. “And this is

Maryland Patients Will Have Secure Access to Their Health Data Starting With COVID-19 Test Results

Available in both a web-based portal and native mobile application, individuals will have access to their COVID-19 test results anytime, anywhere for added efficiency and convenience.

This patient engagement solution will seamlessly integrate with the Health Information Exchange (HIE) currently in place as part of the CRISP suite of tools, facilitating the secure exchange of data from disparate providers and organizations throughout the region.

“These are unprecedented times related to protecting public health in our community due to COVID-19, and we are honored to work with the official health exchange for the state of Maryland,” said Robin Wiener, president of Get Real Health. “Helping to ease the stress of COVID-19 testing and playing a role in improving the health and safety of our fellow citizens is personal to us.

“It is critical that patients have their COVID-19 test results as quickly as possible,” said Craig Behm, Maryland executive director of CRISP. “Although most patients will receive information directly from their physicians, those going to walk-up testing sites may need results through CRISP instead. Get Real Health’s focus on access and interoperability make them great partners in this endeavor.”

“The importance of patient involvement and empowerment in managing their care is more important than ever as we manage through this pandemic,” said Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI. “We look forward to the benefits and impact that the Get Real Health patient engagement platform will have in Maryland and other states for years to come.”
