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 CHI St. Alexius Health in cooperation with the PrimeCare Health Group and rural healthcare providers throughout the Dakotas.
Rural healthcare providers and their patients can meet face-to-face with CHI St. Alexius Health 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. CHI St. Alexius Health is committed to continuing their tradition of enhancing the quality and access to healthcare.
