Montana hospitals partner on neonatal telemedicine care

Bozeman (Mont.) Health and St. Peter's Health in Helena, Mont., will establish a neonatal care and maternal-fetal medicine center that uses telemedicine technology to reach more high-risk patients.

Patients with high-risk pregnancies can use telemedicine technology during their obstetrics and gynecology appointments at St. Peter's Health to virtually connect with a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at Bozeman Health. This new partnership allows families with high-risk pregnancies to stay close to home for as long as possible.

St. Peter's Health patients will have access to neonatal intensive care unit services at Bozeman Health and post-discharge pediatric care can be coordinated back with St. Peter's Health providers.

"Collaboration between healthcare institutions is the vision for the future, and this partnership will bring Montana's leading specialists together with the latest in telemedicine technology to serve patients between Bozeman and Helena who are in need of these critical services," said Wade Johnson, CEO at St. Peter's Health, according to a news release.
