Description

Explore how a rural South Dakota hospital leverages technology to deliver more efficient and safer patient care. Learn best practices from a rural family practice physician and a telehealth physician on how to effectively engage clinicians and explore real-world examples on how the adoption of telehealth has impacted emergency care within rural emergency medicine. Through the use of two-way visual and audio connections, Avera eCARE eEmergency employs physicians and nurses 24/7 to collaborate with hospital providers for emergent situations. With the push of a button, the bedside staff can effectively double the number of staff available to assist in emergency care, allowing the bedside staff to focus on the needs of the patient and reduces the amount of time between patient care and physician to provide real-time response for critical cases. Learn how telehealth can help improve the quality of emergency care, assists with physician recruitment and retention, provides support with critical cases and helps to save lives.
