Mission - Through the use of telecommunications technology and health care professionals, our telemedicine network exists to enhance the quality of and access to health care for the people we serve.
Today's physician can cover hundreds of miles and see several patients in less than an hour without ever leaving his clinic. This remarkable feat is possible in North and South Dakota thanks to the TeleCare Network. Telemedicine service is offered by St. Alexius Medical Center in cooperation with the PrimeCare Health Group and rural health care providers throughout the Dakotas.
Rural health care providers and their patients can meet face-to-face with St. Alexius physicians via two-way "live" television. The physicians are able to consult, examine, and implement patient care plans immediately and the patient never has to leave their rural community.
The benefits of telemedicine are unlimited. Quality, efficiency and delivery of care is enhanced and strengthened. St. Alexius is committed to continuing their tradition of enhancing the quality and access to healthcare.
