Helping face the many challenges
Patients can remain here in our local communities and see specialists from larger facilities in Montana and across the nation!
Patients from Daniels County and the surrounding area face many challenges when accessing specialty medical services beyond the scope of our local DMHC Providers. Sheer distance, inclement weather, and transportation limitations make it difficult to reach specialists located at distant facilities. To better serve our patients, Daniels Memorial participates in the Eastern Montana Telemedicine Network through Billings Clinic to transmit real-time video, audio and medical images between the patient and their specialist provider. Telemedicine utilizes telecommunication technologies in the form of a T1 cable connected directly to Billings Clinic in Billings, Montana. This means patients can remain here in our local communities and see specialists from larger facilities in Montana and across the nation!
Telemedicine services are provided in the specialty areas of cardiology, neurology, diabetes education, surgical follow-up, ENT, mental/behavioral health follow-up, infectious disease and others. Patients may ask their specialist provider at Billings Clinic, or elsewhere, whether Telemedicine appointments are appropriate for their follow-up care, and arrangements will be coordinated with the specialist provider and DMHC through the Eastern Montana Telemedicine Network.
