OffSiteCare - Increasing Acuity and Financial Stability Through Telemedicine.
Founded in 2007, OffSiteCare is transforming rural healthcare by using cost-effective telemedicine solutions to deliver high-acuity medical care. Whether your facility needs hospitalist services, ICU solutions, ER consults, or access to specialists, OffSiteCare provides solutions that can increase both the standard of care and overall profitability.
By teaming your on-site medical staff with experienced specialists via telemedicine, OffSiteCare empowers your hospital to provide high-acuity medical services to the community. Imagine being able to respond to a stroke and start treatment within fifteen minutes, instead of having to transport patients to another facility while the window of treatment is closing. Or how lives can be changed by offering breakthrough medical services, such as dialysis over the Internet.
24/7 access to the expert OffSiteCare team can give your medical and nursing staff the support they need to safely treat critically-ill patients onsite, instead of transferring them to an urban center. Extending high-acuity medical services to rural facilities benefits patients by keeping them close to their families, and enables your hospital to provide necessary and profitable services to the local community.
Currently supporting seven hospitals in Northern California and poised to expand nationwide, OffSiteCare offers programs to assist you in delivering acute stroke intervention, adult and pediatric critical care, infectious disease management, and a wide variety of specialty medical services.
The OffSiteCare Mission
To increase the acuity and profitability of
rural hospitals through telemedicine.
Computers are incredibly fast, accurate, and stupid.
Human beings are incredibly slow, inaccurate, and brilliant.
Together they are powerful beyond imagination.
- Albert Einstein
