Avera eCARE leads the nation in delivering the broadest range of telemedicine services available form a single source. Avera eCARE’s Emergency partners have experienced in the past 12 months: $3.5 million in cost savings for 137+ hospitals across the country; 700+ patient transfers avoided; and 7,700+ video encounters. While the technology set up for hospitals in the Avera network is impressive, Brian Skow, M.D., chief medical officer at Avera eCARE, says it is just part of the solution. Dr. Skow presents how relationship building is the key to success, how the Avera team determines if a partnership with a hospital will work, how they tailor tele-emergency services for each hospital, and more.
