Understanding How Overnight Telehealth Hospitalists are Improving Satisfaction and Generating Revenue in Critical Access Hospitals

Hospitals across the nation are experiencing the financial pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Since 2010, at least 128 rural hospitals have closed, with at least an additional 450 (21% of rural hospitals) found to be financially unstable.  In total, more than 21,500 beds are in jeopardy.  Our current medical and financial situation in healthcare has not helped this worsening state of affairs. 

Darin Willardsen, MD will share with you how TeleHealth Hospitalists are admitting, consulting and cross-covering patients in remote hospitals across the region.  This service is helping to seamlessly care for patients in remote locations during the overnight hours with board certified Internal Medicine Hospitalists.  The result of this service has shown lower patient transfer rates, increased patient satisfaction as well as an increase in nursing and provider satisfaction.  Many of the institutions that have utilized Horizon Virtual have also shown a positive return on investment with the service.

Pandemic Considerations for Health Facility Design

Pandemics are public health challenges that put enormous stress on healthcare workers, supplies, processes and facilities. Recognizing that all of these must be part of our strategy for improvement, and applying our expertise in facility design, EUA has been focusing on potential changes to architectural and interior design. Our primary focus has been on areas where there is already momentum for change, because that is where we anticipate the best adoption. We see several approaches working in concert to further improve our ability to minimize communicable disease transmission. These include reducing patient presentations at the facility, isolating infectious patients who do present, improving the facility’s ability to prevent the spread of infection, and providing surge capacity for high volume episodes. During this discussion EUA’s Healthcare experts will be fielding questions on the ongoing and upcoming shifts they see in healthcare facility planning.
