Blue Mountain Hospital Launches Telehealth Partnership with Intermountain Healthcare
Blue Mountain Hospital is excited to announce that we now provide an extra
level of support to all our patients through a telehealth partnership
with Intermountain Healthcare. The TeleHealth Hospitalist Service focuses
on caring for patients in unique ways. The comprehensive service is staffed
24/7 by a team of physicians and nurses, and partners with our BMH staff
for overall care management, consultations, night-time admits, and rounding
Using TeleHealth technology, including high-definition cameras, audio equipment,
and televisions in
patient rooms, clinicians at Blue Mountain Hospital can quickly connect
with the Hospitalists at Intermountain Healthcare. These TeleHealth programs
allow trained staff and specialists on both ends of the camera to provide
seamless, superior care. In many cases, TeleHealth support may help avoid
transfers, keeping our patients closer to home and family.
"BMH has enjoyed working with Intermountain Healthcare over the years.
This new telehealth service will complement the other services we have
been working on with Intermountain to offer our patients. We are excited
to improve the services offered locally within the community and believe
the positive impact will be substantial for members of our community,"
Chief Executive Officer at Blue Mountain Hospital, Jeremy Lyman.
This partnership with Intermountain Healthcare will not only implement
innovative technology to assist in providing superior patient care, it
will also address existing challenges such as a need for clinical expertise
and support that will allow patients to receive care quickly and continue
along their path to recovery without having to leave Blue Mountain Hospital
or the surrounding area.
