Our telemedicine units are designed for easy use. When a patient requires a physician consultation, a nurse or other healthcare worker will logon to our secure clinical staff portal on our telemedicine carts where he or she can initiate a call with a provider. The nurse plays an active role in the consultation by handling the proper instruments; the nurse will direct the stethoscope and other instruments as instructed by the provider. 


Our providers can use the information gathered by our telemedicine unit to accurately assess the patient. Then, our providers can order the appropriate medications, labs, and other appropriate actions. This structure greatly reduced the number of unnecessary discharges to the hospital; thus, patients remain comfortable, the cost to the health system is reduced, and patients receive robust care as soon as its needed.
