Defining What Telemedicine Is...
According to the American Telemedicine Association: Formally defined, telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s clinical health status.
Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, email, smart phones, wireless tools and other forms of telecommunications technology.
The use of telemedicine has spread rapidly and is now becoming integrated into the ongoing operations of hospitals, specialty departments, home health agencies, private physician offices as well as consumer’s homes and workplaces.
MDstaffers provides both permanent and locum tenens (temporary) experienced clinicians for virtually every specialty and need to various hospitals, clinics, and other facilities nationally. We partner with qualified firms that provide the telemedicine technology for the provider, the patient, and even the facility. Telemedicine is an excellent way to quickly fill staffing shortages and improve your access to and quality of care.
Because of our vast experience in telemedicine, we have a huge network of experienced and interested clinicians. We can supply clinicians for you on a daily, hourly, or per consult basis. We have clinicians who are scheduled full-time and part-time, and who can work as needed. Many of our telemedicine providers can be very flexible with their scheduling. Telemedicine is another way MDstaffers ensures our clients can provide excellent care wherever and whenever it is needed.
