Why They Work for Hospitals and Physicians
The webinar will focus on the benefits of telemedicine as a solution to night shift coverage. Members who attend will learn how telehospitalists can provide a cost-effective alternative to current nighttime staffing models through telenocturnist care, telecross-coverage, and Eagle Surge Protection.
Following a brief introduction of telemedicine and its basic components, the webinar will focus on telemedicine’s applications to nighttime staffing challenges, including:
- Telenocturnist Care from remote physicians and on-site night charge nurses
- Telecross-Coverage between nighttime rounding and ED admissions during surges (“Eagle Surge Protection”)
- Collaborative care between remote physicians and NP/PAs.
Attendees will learn how telenocturnists and other telemedicine solutions can ease the night shift burdens faced by rural and larger hospitals, with benefits including customer satisfaction, quick physician access, cost savings, burnout reduction, and growth potential for nighttime admissions.
