Patients face complex, critical illness every day, all over the country. When patients visit their local hospital, the answer is often a transfer that sends them hundreds of miles away from their families and communities – the support system they need most. Meanwhile, hospitals lose much-needed revenue, and communities face the very real possibility of losing their critical access hospital.
Intermountain Connect Care Pro is changing that. Our goal is to keep patients as close to home as possible. We use telehealth to bring specialty knowledge to clinical teams, and provide access to care when, where, and how your patients need it.
What does Connect Care Pro do?
Connect Care Pro brings Intermountain’s world-class experts and high-quality care to patients, no matter where they are, so they can receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time. We have three main goals:
- Keep patients out of the acute care setting by providing access to care in homes, clinics, and patients' local communities wherever possible.
- Provide local caregivers access to the specialized support they need to safely care for patients and reduce unnecessary transfers.
- Streamline the process for referring providers, ensure patients are optimized for transport, and transfer patients to the most appropriate location with the ability to care for them.
