Intermountain, Boston Children's + more scaling telehealth programs

Hospitals are scaling their telehealth platforms to improve health outcomes and provide access to care to all patient communities.

Here are three telehealth expansion projects health systems' have recently created and deployed:

  1. Driggs, Idaho-based Teton Valley Health Hospital created TeleBurn, a telehealth program designed to care for both adults and children affected by injuries such as burns, frostbite and skin slouching.

  2. Boston Children's Hospital partnered with virtual care platform Summus Global to come up with innovative ideas and technology that will allow its specialists to reach more patients regardless of their location. The partnership will also scale up Boston Children's Hospital's online second opinion program, which virtually connects patients with a pediatric physician from the hospital in order to review medical records for a second assessment and to answer questions about a diagnosis.

  3. Burley, Idaho-based Intermountain Cassia Regional Hospital is launching Pediatric TeleHealth Consults, a program that will provide access to pediatric trauma and critical care specialists, provider-to-provider consultations, and connect physicians and nurses at Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Primary Children's Hospital with Intermountain Cassia Regional caregivers and patients.
