Nocturnal coverage can be a hurdle for any hospital, especially rural hospitals, and TeleHealth Solution meets the challenges of your critical access hospital whatever they might be. Your patients will receive real-time diagnoses and treatment at night from expert TeleNocturnists. Our on-call virtual Hospitalist will manage your patients throughout their shift until they are handed off to one of your daytime in-house doctors or our daytime TeleHospitalist. Our nocturnal coverage will reduce patient transfers to larger hospitals and in turn increase your critical access hospital census. Our nocturnal coverage also helps reduce your physician burnout and attrition by handling everything from floor call, to admissions, to running code blues and more at night or during day shifts – reducing your staffing challenges.
If your critical access hospital requires more than just nocturnal coverage, our TeleHospitalists can be accessible to your patients and staff with our 24/7 coverage. Our Hospitalists can provide day time coverage, just as your in-house doctor can. We can manage care, attend interdisciplinary rounds, discharge patients, and more, all virtually with our TeleMedicine Technology.
Our Solution to Staffing Challenges
Rural Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals engage remotely with TeleHospitalists to provide a support system for Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and other clinical staff. We have the ability to cover shifts during the day and at night, giving your rural hospital access to our doctors without having to hire additional physician staff, making staffing challenges a problem of the past. Our TeleMedicine Technology begins closing the gaps that are burdening communities nationwide at a fraction of the cost of an in-house Hospitalist.
An answer to your staffing challenges can provide direct supervision of your in-house Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant. We enhance advanced care practitioner management by providing access to our physicians offsite who can guide and advise your staff in providing evidence based local care. Our TeleHospitalists participate in rounds virtually and become a part of your clinical team and community at your critical access hospital.
TeleMedicine Technology allows us to alleviate the burden of overwhelmed physicians with cross-coverage calls. Your critical access hospital doctor can often spend hours of his/her shift just answering phone calls. Immediate access to our skilled on-call doctor provides top-quality care without burdening another provider, and reduces stress on patients, their family, and your staff. This encounter can be a simple phone call, a real-time face-to-face video examination, or a code blue rapid response.
