Gastroenterology Telemedicine (Tele-GI) Services

By increasing access to GI care, Eagle is enabling early diagnosis, speeding time to treatment and improving patient survival rates.

Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders affect millions of people in the United States each year. By leveraging telemedicine specialists for gastroenterology hospitals can greatly improve patient access and lower the impact of gastric diseases.

Providing care via remote consultations, these specialists can offer virtual gastroenterology assessments, diagnosis, and treatment plans to individuals in need. Telemedicine programs can greatly improve patients’ access to gastroenterologists, regardless of their physical location, breaking down geographical barriers and offering care that might not otherwise be available. This approach also reduces the burden on on-staff specialists and in person clinicians while also enabling gastroenterologist specialists to reach a broader patient population.

There is a dire shortage of Endocrinologists available in the U.S. Over 38 million Americans suffer from diabetes, in addition to the estimated 8 million who remain undiagnosed, yet there are only around 8,000 total Endocrinologists available nationwide. There is a huge disparity between the amount of patients needing care and the number of qualified physicians who can provide that care. This disparity is further exacerbated for patients living in rural areas. Although 85% of those living with diabetes rely solely on their primary care providers for treatment, some patients may have more complex cases and need to be examined by a specialist. Endocrine-related disorders are often highly medicated – careful administration and monitoring is critical. Our team of board-certified Tele-Endocrinologist is ready to support your hospital through inpatient or clinic coverage so your patients can have access to the care they need.
