Intermountain Creates a Virtual Hospital with Telehealth Tools and Services
Intermountain Healthcare announced a new virtual hospital model built on telehealth technologies.
Connect Care Pro is made up of 35 telehealth programs, some 500 caregivers and includes basic medical care as well as advanced services such as stroke evaluation, mental health counseling, intensive and newborn critical care.
Nine hospitals – outside of the Intermountain system of 22 hospitals – have already established the service, which aims to reduce costs of care and length of stay. Intermountain also anticipates a reduction in mortality rates.
