Mille Lacs Health System (MLHS) recently rolled out a new technology in the Emergency Department (ED) allowing providers to video conference with board-certified emergency medicine physicians and nurses from outside our facility 24/7/365. This “bedside” tele-emergency technology is provided by Avel eCare, a company out of South Dakota.
The Avel system has been installed in both ED trauma rooms, and a portable unit on wheels is also stationed in the ED. Medical providers via Avel have access to all necessary records (scans, labs, medications, staff lists, etc), same as if they were on campus.
