Clearfly Industry Case Study: Billings Clinic and Eastern Montana Telemedicine Network
Lowering the cost of healthcare while, at the same time, improving patient care is a national priority. For the past 17 years, Billings Clinic and the Eastern Montana Telemedicine Network (EMTN) have been doing just that. In the past year alone, the expanded use of telemedicine by providers in EMTN has resulted in savings of $2.6 million dollars by the 30,260 participants.
Led and housed by Billings Clinic, Eastern Montana Telemedicine Network began as a cooperative effort between Billings Clinic and five rural healthcare facilities in eastern Montana to research the potential of interactive videoconferencing in improving access to medical specialty and mental health services
