Hutchinson Regional Medical Center unveils telepulmonology services

Hutchinson (Kan.) Regional Medical Center joined forces with Eagle Telemedicine to offer a telepulmonology program, according to a Great Bend Tribune report.

The new program allows physicians to remotely conference in and interact with patients via video monitor and camera. The hospital also has a digital stethoscope and a cloud-based telehealth network enabling physicians to access staff in the hospitals as well as EHRs and laboratory tests.

Eagle Telemedicine's pulmonologists will work closely with the medical staff at the hospital to ensure the program runs smoothly.

Hutchinson Regional already offers a telestroke program.
