As value-based care increases, developing different delivery models to reduce unnecessary 30-day hospital readmissions and length of stay is a key challenge for any healthcare organizations globally. By the use of telehealth, rural long-term care facilities and acute care facilities have avoided 88% of re-admissions.

Hear from TeleHealth Solution, Glenbridge Health and Rehabilitation, and Watuga Medical Center (part of Appalachian Regional Healthcare System), how telemedicine is allowing them to treat more patients in place, avoiding unnecessary hospital transfers and drastically reducing their re-admissions rates.

Changes in a resident’s physical condition can necessitate the need for an immediate assessment and additional actions to be taken by a physician. This pilot program allows for physicians to consult with the resident, via the telemedicine system avoiding unnecessary transfer to the hospital. A nurse at the patient site who participates in the telemedicine consultation can assist in providing the physician with additional information that at times a physician lacks when conducting a visit in their office and or clinic setting.

Having telemedicine equipment in an education setting, truly prepares our healthcare professionals of the future, for what they need to know.  It gives them "real-word" experience because they don't just learn about the technology, but they get to touch it and use it. Students at  Decker School of Nursing practice doing clinical assessments using the telemedicine technology, and connecting to a remote site.

PROYECTO TELESALUD para Bolivia: a country-wide deployment to 339 remote health centers in Bolivia municipalities to support government initiatives to improve rural population access to healthcare. The scope of the project includes telemedicine program design, telemedicine carts, medical devices, encounter management software and technical training. The medical specialties serviced with the telemedicine equipment include primary care and women’s health.

In order to design and implement the project, the Ministry of Health teamed up with three cross-sector partners – International Telecommunication and Technology Integration S.A. (ITTI), a private Bolivian corporation, and Entel S.A., a public telecommunication company, owned by the State and AMD Global Telemedicine.
