Grant Summary:

We seek TCI funding to sustain support for eEmergency, a program that will provide remote emergency support services to our rural hospital via a telehealth system. eEmergency links our ED to a fully staffed hub of board-certified emergency physicians and seasoned emergency nurses. The two-way video system allows rural facilities to access the support services of a Level-II trauma center, including the presence of emergency and other specialty physicians and nursing support for transfer coordination, documentation, and procedural support.
