To advance healthcare delivery and improve patient outcomes in our rural area, Sheridan Memorial Hospital recently installed new telehealth communication equipment in its Intensive Care Unit (ICU).  According to the American Hospital Association, telehealth solutions empower local physicians through access to specialists who work in partnership on diagnosis and a patient’s individual treatment plan.  The addition was made possible thanks to philanthropy and gifts from our generous community.

Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. John Addlesperger explains further, “This technology and a collaborative agreement with the Billings Clinic will enable our hospitalist physicians to consult with the critical care specialists in the Billings Clinic ICU.  The Billings Clinic physicians will be able to access our electronic medical records to review our ICU patients’ lab, x-ray and medical notes, as well as see and interact with the patient and the attending physician here in Sheridan through the telemedicine device. We believe this arrangement will ensure the best possible care for the most critically ill patients in Sheridan.  It allows patients who might otherwise have been transferred to Billings the opportunity to remain in Sheridan, close to their loved ones, avoiding the stress of being transported.  And, for those few patients who may need a higher level of care at the Billings Clinic, it will provide a more seamless transition of care.”
