To recognize this initiative, Prairie Mountain Health is hosting two days of Telehealth Open Houses.
Sandi Allen Regional Manager for Client and Patient Relations Department of PMH, talks about why they are hosting open houses.
“So there’s a couple of reasons, telehealth has become a really important technology factor with providing health care closer to home for patients that live rural and remote areas in accessing physicians without the burden of time and travel,” explained Allen. “Certainly as winter is upon us, you know it’s really important to help keep those patients closer to home if that is available to them.”
