Click to see Piper’s story in Intermountain’s new annual report — and see how we’re enhancing care through Teleservices technology.
Piper McAlister was born four weeks early at Intermountain’s Valley View Medical Center. Teleservices technology allowed family medicine physician Steven Newman, MD, in Cedar City, to consult with neonatologist Patrick Carroll, MD, at Dixie Regional, to provide immediate intervention for Piper’s collapsed lung and stabilize her for transport to Dixie Regional. Dr. Carroll watched and consulted with Dr. Newman in real time during the procedure to help ensure success. Piper is now thriving at home with her family.
Piper’s story is one of the features you’ll find in Intermountain Healthcare’s new online annual report. See a video of Piper’s story in the Annual Report.
Teleservices include video, audio, and other technology that expand the possibilities for patient care and allow physicians to consult in real time. At Intermountain, we’re enhancing our range of Teleservices to make it easier for patients to get remote access to caregivers.
Piper’s story is an example of how Intermountain is redesigning care as part of our Shared Accountability strategy. At Intermountain, we focus on increasing patient access to effective care, decreasing the risk of unnecessary interventions, and improving clinical outcomes.
