OTN | Services | tele-emerg

OTN's Emergency Services Program uses telemedicine in situations requiring the management of a life threatening condition. Without telemedicine, these situations could result in permanent disability or even death. Tele-emergency applications at OTN include Telestroke, virtual critical care, trauma, burn/plastics, and crisis tele-psychiatry.

Benefits include:

  • Elimination of geographic barriers to specialized emergency services and service providers
  • reduction of unnecessary transfers and ensure necessary transfers occur in a timely fashion
  • improved diagnostic response times
  • improved decision‐making
  • improved patient outcomes
