Health systems and state Telehealth networks are offering Telehealth services to the local and extended communities they serve. This is a positive initiative for both the facilities and their patients. We see this trend continuing to grow at a rapid pace based on industry trends and the ready availability of inexpensive technologies to support the service offering. We know from experience, many of those outlying facilities are eager to participate in these services that will allow local access to clinicians traditionally only reached by car. While the interest by the provider and patient is certainly there, the challenge can be in getting the technology in place to get the parties “connected”.
Often there are not enough, or any, IT resources available at these sites to manage, install, support or sustain the Telemedicine technology. This lack of resource makes it challenging to get all of the IT and connectivity related pieces put in place.
Blue Cirrus, a leader in Telehealth consulting, has a Virtual CIO & IT Services Offering as part of our overall Telehealth consulting practice. This practice will allow state Telehealth networks, remote hospitals and clinics, along with health systems providing Telehealth services to partner with a firm who can help manage all of the IT and connectivity requirements for their remote/rural customers. Managed by a CIO with a team of IT experienced experts, Blue Cirrus can be called upon to provide the services needed to get up and running. A summary of our services are as follows:
