World-Class Specialists in Infectious Disease Telemedicine

Access TeleCare puts board-certified telemedicine infectious disease specialists in hospitals and clinics across the country for diagnosis, treatment, and consultation.

Infectious Disease Telemedicine Consultation

Board-certified infectious disease specialists are available to diagnose, treat and manage patients with difficult, unusual, or complicated bacterial, fungal, viral and parasitic infections, such as meningitis, sepsis, complicated urinary tract infection, pneumonia, cellulitis and abscess, surgical site infections, osteomyelitis, prosthetic joint infections, transplant infections, and HIV. Our telemedicine infectious disease program decreases unnecessary transfers, increases census, and supports local physicians to manage a higher complexity of disease.

Antibiotic Stewardship

Our telemedicine antibiotic stewardship program can be implemented in all hospitals, even those without in-house or on-site infectious disease specialists. These programs:

  • Reduce hospital pharmacy expenditures related to antibiotic prescriptions – the number one spend in hospital pharmacy.
  • Achieve clinical excellence goals of reducing both antibiotic overuse and antibiotic resistance and financial goals of reducing costs.

Patient-Centered Infectious Disease Telemedicine Care
An Access TeleCare Patient Case Study

Our infectious disease specialists helped one hospital reduce what was initially diagnosed by the on-site care team as a six-week treatment plan into one that lasted just a few days.

Access TeleCare’s board-certified telemedicine infectious disease specialists are available to diagnose, treat, and manage patients with difficult, unusual, or complicated bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections, such as meningitis, sepsis, complicated urinary tract infection, pneumonia, cellulitis and abscess, and HIV.

PATIENT CASE STUDY

A morbidly obese patient suffering from diabetes, asthma, and hypertension entered their local Texas hospital’s emergency department with chest pain, intractable nausea and vomiting, and a productive cough. Within minutes an Access TeleCare pulmonologist and an Access TeleCare infectious disease specialist were coordinating care with on-site teams in real time.
