Saint Alphonsus Health System


Saint Alphonsus Telemedicine Program

The Emergency Specialist Program was created to improve access to state-of-the-art health care for patients presenting to our partnering hospital emergency departments. Utilizing Remote Presence Technology to accommodate face to face provider collaboration, integration of emergency protocols, and coordination of services between hospitals, patient treatment and transport can be expedited. This consultative approach improves access to specialty care and reduces the need for travel and unnecessary patient transports.

Saint Alphonsus Health System has developed outpatient clinics in partnership with rural facilities via Remote Presence technology. These clinics are based on population need and are designed to increase access to specialty services and eliminate the time and expensive of travel. Specialists in Boise can connect in real time to patients in outlying areas, decreasing the need to travel.
