Extend the Reach of MIH/CP with Telehealth
How can mobile telehealth enhance your MIH/CP program?
Telehealth, mobile integrated healthcare (MIH) and community paramedicine (CP) go hand-in-hand. Fast, secure mobile telehealth maximizes the resources and communication between EMS and hospitals as they work to provide in-home care remotely.
To save critical time, improve metrics and assure the best possible patient outcomes, MIH/CP paramedics and EMTs need to visually consult with distant healthcare providers through data collection and sharing vitals in real time.
Offer your community critical access to healthcare with mobile telemedicine
The highly configurable GD e-Bridge MIH/CP Module, D-Scribe and GoBox work together to support EMTs and paramedics as they give preventative, non-emergency and emergency care to patients outside of the hospital.
MIH/CP is particularly valuable in rural areas, as it allows patients to receive affordable, quality care and emergency departments to reduce overcrowding. With these HIPAA-compliant, all-in-one tools, community paramedics are able to access previous pre-hospital and hospital communication, consult with hospital teams in the field via live video, receive remote medical direction and record and document care in the home.
The MIH/CP programs that these solutions support are ideal for patients who seek primary care services, make non-emergency 911 calls, require wound and post-operative follow-up care and need chronic illness management. Mobile telemedicine ensures that all teams are aligned for the well-being of these patients and the healthcare systems that serve them.
Helps support healthcare teams in responding to situations as diverse as events, disasters, and multi-casualty incidents to everyday EMS and community paramedicine, even where cell and internet bandwidth are low.
