TeleCare

 St. Claire Regional Medical Center (SCR) Telecare uses innovative teleconferencing technology to increase medical access to the foothills of the Appalachians.
Telecare is the secure digital transmission of medical information from one site to another to facilitate patient and healthcare provider interaction. Telemedicine is a great option for patients when a traditional consultation cannot be done due to travel circumstances. A combination of sophisticated audio/visual equipment, medical diagnostic equipment and medical staff, who act as the physicians “hands” make it possible for SCR Telecare to offer its various services.

SCR has been performing telemedicine consultations since 1995 and became a telemedicine hub site in 1998. Improving patient’s access to healthcare through Telecare clinics is a priority for SCR  Telecare. Currently there are 10+ regional sites. In addition to these sites, SCR Telecare has 100+ additional partner sites as part of the Kentucky Telehealth network.

A variety of services are available through SCR Telecare. These services include but are not limited to:

Anesthesia pre-operative assessment
Dermatology
Diabetes self-management
Family Practice (school-based)
Nutritional Counseling
Radiology Review
Behavioral Health
Child Psychiatry

Other specialty services as needed

By providing these and many other services through Telecare, SCR can continue its quest to bring quality healthcare to the residents of Eastern Kentucky.
