TeleHealth Solution: How It Works

Our equipment, your nurse, and basic Wi-Fi means a patient’s H&P and admission to your critical access hospital is handled exactly the same as if a hospitalist was physically there. Learn more about working with our 24/7 on-demand access to professional TeleHospitalist doctors who can remotely review labs, enter orders, and admit then manage patients — even code blues and rapid response, for nocturnal coverage or cross coverage or anytime coverage.

Step 1: How TeleMedicine Works

Patient Needs Medical Attention

A new patient is admitted from the Emergency Room to your critical access hospital and needs to be examined OR a patient already in your hospital has had a change in medical condition and needs to be examined by one of our physicians.

Step 1: How TeleMedicine Works

Instant access to a TeleHospitalist

Your rural critical access nurse calls our TeleHospitalist and if the patient is a new admission, our physician will perform the history and physical and enter admission orders. If it is a current floor patient, the doctor will discuss the patient’s status with the nurse and will determine if a bedside evaluation is needed. If simple orders are needed without an evaluation, they will be placed by our physician.

Step 1: How TeleMedicine Works

Patient Interaction

Our TeleHospitalist may be miles away, but they have already begun communicating with the patient face-to-face about their medical complaints.

Step 1: How TeleMedicine Works

Clinical Staff Assisted Examination

Our remote TeleHospitalist will instruct your rural critical access nursing staff- in real time- to assist in evaluation with a variety of diagnostic tools including, a virtual stethoscope to high-definition cameras on our Telemedicine Technology Cart.

Step 1: How TeleMedicine Works

Diagnosing the Patient

The TeleHospitalist is now able to make an informed diagnosis in real time. We can order additional labs / tests, continue to manage that patient, and document the encounter in your electronic medical record (EMR).

Step 1: How TeleMedicine Works

Continuity of Care

Our TeleHospitalist are always available during your contracted hours, to address any patient related medical issues. During the shift, you will speak with the same Hospitalist who is already familiar with your patient’s medical status and needs.

The National Rural Health Association warns, “More than 70 rural critical access hospitals have closed and counting. Right now, 673 additional facilities are vulnerable and could close – this represents over 1/3 of rural hospitals in the U.S.” TeleHealth Solution can help critical access hospitals by keeping the treatment of the patient—and the revenue generated by that patient—local. At the same time, we protect the rural community’s doctor from becoming overwhelmed and burnt out. TeleHealth Solution benefits everyone.

Amazing Patient Satisfaction

Dr. Jason Perlman

“With our no-up-front-cost pricing model, any hospital can implement TeleHealth Solution. The increased revenue from admitting more patients instead of transferring them—plus the cost-savings from not hiring a full-time hospitalist—gives you money for other projects. Add to that the reduced burnout rates among your rural doctors and the increased recruitment appeal for new doctors, and your hospital will see a multi-focal ROI.”
