  • Provide physician coverage for advanced practice providers.
  • Assess and treat complicated cases.
  • Facilitate transfer to a higher level of care, when needed.
  • Work with onsite clinicians and nursing staff.
  • Order testing and medications.
  • Talk to families regarding current patient care.

We Know Every Second Counts for Emergency Care

From the time a patient enters one of our 39 emergency departments (ED), they are seen by a provider in less than 10 minutes on average. Perhaps more impressively, the first order of care is entered within 12 minutes of being greeted. Our providers understand the importance of timely care to diagnose, treat, and admit or discharge our patients in emergency and urgent care clinics. Thanks to our efforts and telehealth experience, the average length of stay is only 2-½ hours for tele-emergency medicine patients.

Real Tele-ER Experience Makes for Real Results

In addition to providing care urgently, we are dedicated to delivering only exceptional quality. Our physicians provide world-class telehealth care services, and we are all committed to continually improving our patient outcomes. Our team staffs two “level 2 trauma centers” and is known nationwide as a leader in both sepsis and stroke care.

We also staff the first stroke center in Colorado, which is also the busiest stroke center in the state. Our ED stroke system has provided a number of patients with TPA in under 9 minutes. More than 75% of all eligible patients receive TPA within 60 minutes of arrival in the Emergency Department, regardless of presentation or arrival mode.

Our sepsis metrics are equally impressive with sepsis shock mortality rate, which has dropped from 29% in Quarter 4 2016 to 20% in Quarter 1 2018. The mortality rate continues to decline quarter over quarter thanks to telemedicine advancements and better patient care. Furthermore, almost half of all sepsis patients receive an antibiotic within one hour of arriving in the ED.
