Essentia Health has expanded telehealth to Deer River.
The service connects emergency medicine specialists at Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center with the emergency department in Essentia Health-Deer River.
The Duluth hospital also has telehealth connections with emergency rooms in Sandstone, Aurora, Ada and Graceville, all in Minnesota, an Essentia Health news release said.
Telehealth uses high-
resolution cameras, microphones and a secure network to allow caregivers in both facilities to consult with each other and the patient as if they were all in the same room, the news release said.
