Infectious Disease Specialists With Telemedicine


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

Infectious Disease 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 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.

Why is the use of eICU use growing

There are several reasons that the use of eICU is growing:

  • Physician shortages make it hard to recruit enough intensivists to staff appropriately.
  • An aging population means that there is more demand for services.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to protect providers so that they can avoid exposure and continue to treat patients
  • With high demand and not enough supply, physicians experience burnout trying to make up the gap.
  • The rapid acceleration of the adoption of technology, like mobile phones, means consumers expect more convenience in their healthcare.

eICU coverage can also help hospitals who have critical care physicians on staff, allowing them to offload some of their work and gain visibility into what is happening across the hospital and leverage their own skillset more broadly.
