Mercy’s virtual care program creatively combines people and technology to extend Mercy’s reach and services well beyond the walls of doctors’ offices, hospital campuses and other traditional facilities. By studying the impact of new approaches and then putting new technologies to the test, Mercy ultimately hopes to provide better care through more convenient and lower-cost locations.
The first of its kind, Mercy Virtual Care Center began operating in October 2015 without a single patient in the building. Virtual care is delivered using highly sensitive two-way cameras, online-enabled instruments and real-time vital signs, allowing clinicians to “see” patients. Patients may be in one of Mercy’s traditional hospitals, a doctor’s office or, in some cases, the patient’s own home.
Mercy Virtual delivers virtual care services to 600,000 patients across seven states (Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania & South Carolina), improving patient outcomes and access while reducing total cost of care. Operating 24 hours a day and is staffed with more than 300 clinicians, it's often called a hospital without beds. Learn More >
