Ohio Living Mount Pleasant highlighted for telemedicine technology
Ohio Living Mount Pleasant was featured this week in a national news story on the benefits of telemedicine technology.
In a Family 411 segment produced by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, reporter Tara Morgan followed Ohio Living Mount Pleasant patient William Philips and his nurse as they spoke with a doctor remotely to help treat his shortness of breath.
The telehealth technology utilized at Ohio Living Mount Pleasant is made possible through TripleCare, which allows doctors to speak directly with patients without having to leave their bed. The doctors work closely with existing nurse and facility doctors to help prevent them from taking an unnecessary trip to the hospital.
Dr. David Chess visits patients from hundreds of miles away with Telemedicine and walks nurses through exams. He believes "getting the doctor to the bedside when a patient was ill would make an enormous difference in people's lives."
