Tele-ID

While the number of Infectious Disease specialists declines, the need for ID and Tele-ID specialists in hospitals continues to rise. Eagle Tele-ID allows hospitals to provide in-house specialty treatment for patients instead of transferring them to another facility. Hospitals that implement an ID program can realize quality of care enhancements, reduced length of stay, and better antibiotic stewardship.

What can a Tele-ID program do for your patients?

  • Tele-ID improves specificity of diagnosis, which leads to faster therapeutic and antibiotic interventions, shorter length of stay and lower patient transfers
    and readmissions.
  • Access to a specialist assists in medication management protocols and treatment plans that improve patient care and hospital metrics.
  • Provide care close to home to increase patient satisfaction and allow the patient to receive support from family and follow-up from local physicians.

What emergent conditions can Tele-ID providers treat?

Coronavirus
Coronavirus

Coronavirus

Some patients with COVID-19 develop viral pneumonia, which cannot be treated with antibiotics. Access to a Tele-ID specialist, improves the likelihood of proper diagnosis and treatment, which takes the burden off internal medicine or emergency medicine practitioners.
Staph Infection
Staph Infection

Staph Infection

This bacteria is carried by about 30% of people their noses. Most of the time, staph does not cause any harm. Diagnosis and treatment from an infectious disease specialist can lower the risk of staph infections becoming serious or fatal for at-risk patients, like those that are immunocompromised or elderly.
Tickborne Diseases
Tickborne Diseases

Tick-borne Diseases

Ticks carry bacteria, viruses or parasites. Lyme disease is the most common. Symptoms of tick-borne diseases resemble many other diseases, which often leads to misdiagnosis. Specialists, like Tele-ID physicians, are well equipped to diagnose and treat these conditions.
Influenza
Influenza

Influenza

Flu season in the US claims tens of thousands of lives every year. Influenza is one of many conditions telemedicine physicians can diagnose and treat in an inpatient setting.
Strep Infection

Strep Infection

Early diagnosis and antibiotics prescribed by a Tele-ID specialist can prevent Streptococcus from progressing to more serious conditions like strep throat, scarlet fever and pneumonia.
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)

RSV

Spread through contaminated air droplets, infants and the elderly are most at risk for complications related to RSV. Early diagnosis allows for monitoring of the patient’s breathing, removal of secretions from the upper airways and supplemental oxygen. These early interventions can help elderly patients avoid respiratory failure or intubation.
Sepsis
Sepsis

Sepsis

Sepsis, the body’s life-threatening inflammatory response to an infection, is the leading cause of death in hospitalized patients. Tele-ID specialists can help lower sepsis-associated mortality rates.
