The next time you find yourself in the emergency room at Regional Medical Center, you may be getting some extra care from doctors through a video screen.
It’s called Avera eCARE Emergency Services. And Dr. Craig Thompson says it’s a new addition to the Manchester hospital.
Emergency Department Coordinator Jeanette Riniker says it doesn’t replace your bedside provider, nurse or paramedic – it’s just extra support.
And Dr. Thompson says the new eCARE services will bring several benefits.
RMC staff was trained on the new eCARE services yesterday and it’s being offered for the first time today.
