If jobs in telemedicine interest you, Eagle can make all the difference.
After a year of working long hours and back-to-back schedules, hospitalists, emergency medicine physicians and critical care providers are anxious to find jobs in telemedicine to improve work-life balance.
For those considering a telemedicine role, one of the fastest-growing areas in medicine, finding the right organization is paramount. Some telemedicine and telehealth companies operate like locum tenens businesses – rotating doctors from hospital to hospital with minimal understanding of clinical workflow and facility operations. This can create challenges, like patient documentation and onsite communication unnecessarily difficult.
Eagle makes telemedicine easy. Here’s how:
It’s not just the “ always-on, anywhere” technology that makes telemedicine great. We assign our telemedicine physicians in small teams for a particular specialty or facility. They quickly get to know the hospitals to which they are assigned, and the hospital’s clinical teams quickly get to know them on a first-name basis.
Our providers consider themselves members of each hospital’s staff, who just live a little further away than the rest of the team.
When applying for a virtual role, consider the program’s structure. Is it better to work for a company that places you in a queue to provide care at a large number of hospitals? Or, would you prefer to be working with a small number of locations and other telemedicine providers?
Working for Eagle means you’re backed by:
- A team of telemedicine physicians who support you and understand your challenges.
- Onsite staff that you know and that know you – making patient care easier to coordinate.
Training is a critical component in the delivery of virtual care. Before accepting a telemedicine job, ask how you will be trained. A good telemedicine company offers intensive training and orientation, including:
- Clinical workflow by locations
- Patient evaluation procedures
- Patient hand-off policies
- Regulatory compliance
- and more
Knowing how to work with a patient and the hospital allows you to be at ease and knowledgeable about how to care for the patient.
Eagle also provides one-on-one training when onboarding new physicians. We are focused on continuously improving our training practices, which have included a mentor-mentee element for several years.
“I was lucky to have a mentor to guide me through my first night as a telemedicine physician. Mentorship is very beneficial,” says Dr. Sheetal Patel. “Now, I lead the effort to mentor physicians transitioning to Telemedicine. There are specific protocols for how and when to use telemedicine at each hospital. I train new providers on these protocols.”
Dr. Patel is responsible for onboarding many Eagle physicians. She guides the hospital’s procedures. She offers in-depth training on various EMR systems.
The value of having such a support network is reflected in the professional satisfaction scores of our physicians and our low turnover rate.
Finding the right telemedicine company for you? Focus on the company’s mission, accreditation and current staff. Eagle Telemedicine was founded on the belief that all patients should have access to high-quality patient care no matter where they are located.
Led by physicians, including Dr. Talbot “Mac” McCormick, CEO, we focus on rural communities and hospitals providing care in underserved communities. These hospitals face challenges, like:
- Trouble recruiting physicians to their community.
- Limited funds to support a wide variety of specialists.
- Trouble supporting 24/7/365 coverage.
The patients in these communities have the same needs as patients in major metropolitan areas with ample access to providers. Our commitment to providing expert care to these patients drives our mission:
- To lead the industry through insight and innovation, providing hospitals with the best solutions and tools to optimize patient outcomes.
- To maintain a collaborative culture that furthers our mission of improving the performance of our partner hospitals, while setting the standard for a constantly evolving industry.
- To continue to cultivate partnerships with hospitals large and small, empower them to make a positive impact in their local communities, and strengthen their ability to serve the underserved.
The Eagle Result
- Strong connections with partner hospitals
- Thorough training
- Quality patient care
Time and time again, our remote providers recommend Eagle Telemedicine to their colleagues and friends as a great place to work. “You will make a difference in your patients’ lives,” says Dr. McCormick. “Eagle will make a difference in your life.”
If you’re a physician ready for a change, looking forward to the future of medicine, telemedicine is an exciting frontier. Our telemedicine physician jobs allow you to connect with patients that have limited access to specialist, increase physician coverage in rural areas and prevent patient transfers.
Eagle started as a physician-led endeavor, providing hospitalist services for short-staffed facilities. Our founder foresaw the future of medicine in 2008, and we are on the cusp of his vision. It’s an exciting time to join Eagle Telemedicine — as we expand to meet the needs of healthcare throughout our country in rural, suburban and inner-city hospitals.
