District One begins virtual care partnership with Children’s Minnesota

[Faribault Daily News, Sept. 30, 2019] Through a new virtual care partnership, physicians at District One Hospital now have enhanced 24/7 access to Children’s Minnesota neonatal care specialists. Using audio/video technology, District One physicians can hold a virtual consultation with a neonatal clinician from Children’s.

From there, clinicians from both systems collaborate on the care management of newborns requiring acute stabilization after birth and determine whether the baby needs to be transferred another facility for further care. Read the full story online at www.southernminn.com/faribault_daily_news.

District One Hospital Birth Center nurses train on newborn stabilization at District One Hospital nursery using an audio/video Neonatal Virtual Care Cart. Use of this cart brings a Children’s Minnesota neonatal care specialist to the bedside of the baby within minutes of the call.
