News : Jamesport to host tele-medicine demonstration
Posted by John on 2012/12/27 11:10:00 (303 reads) News by the same author

On Thursday, January 3rd, Wright Memorial Hospital will host a live tele-medicine eConsult demonstration at the Tri-County R-VII School in Jamesport.

Gary Jordan, CEO at Wright Memorial Hospital, will open the event and welcome community members. Steve Kropp, director of outreach services for Saint Luke’s Health System, and Gary Ripple, M.D., Chief medical officer of tele-medicine for Saint Luke’s Health System, will lead the demonstration.

Using a mobile remote presence device that resembles an IV stand with a monitor attached, the innovative eConsult system allows Saint Luke’s physicians to speak directly with patients in their rooms—with their families and nurses present to discuss and ask questions. The eConsult system provides a safe and secure network that protects every patient’s rights and privacy. Through its secure, FDA-cleared video interface, eConsult offers a picture so high quality and detailed that the specialist can even zoom in to observe the patient’s pupils, easily read monitors anywhere in the room, and listen to the patient’s heartbeat with a stethoscope. This allows patients to consult with a specialist from Saint Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, without ever leaving their local communities.

The live demonstration is open to any resident of Daviess County and will begin at 6 p.m. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and light refreshments will be served. Tri-County R-VII School is located at 904 W. Auberry Grove in Jamesport, and the demo will be held in the cafeteria. For more information, call 660-358-5711.
