Receiving quality care from an emergency medicine physician following a 9-1-1 call is critical, but how can you bring the expertise of the physician directly to the patient without transport to the ED to reduce delays in care and unnecessary admissions? From initial emergency dispatch and treatment in place to in-transit care, telehealth has a place in the EMS care.

In the webinar, Dr. Bryan Graham, Medical Director of the Virtual Emergency Medicine Program at Cleveland Clinic, and Chris O’Rourke, Institute Administrator for the Emergency Services Institute at Cleveland Clinic, discussed how the health system has scaled and grown its Virtual ED Model to divert unnecessary emergency department admissions and reduce readmission, all while replicating emergency care in the field.

  • Avoided ED transports for 70% of patients
  • Secured buy-in from EMS agencies

“Amwell’s platform is so easy for families and providers to use; it was a natural fit for Nemours.”

“Nemours puts patients and families at the center of everything we do, so as we started to think about providing care virtually it was absolutely essential that we still be able to deliver that type of patient and family-centered care. Amwell’s platform is so easy for families and providers to use; it was a natural fit for Nemours.
