CentraCare helps treat heart failure patients at Rice Memorial Hospital

CentraCare Heart and Vascular Center, combines telehealth technology and clinical expertise to bring local care for congestive heart failure to a higher level. Addressing the needs of rural patients, a patient in rural Willmar, Minnesota and a clinician in St. Cloud can see and speak to each other via the two-way connection. From St. Cloud, a mini-camera can be manipulated to get a close-up look at the patient’s ankles to check for swelling. Heart and lung sounds through a stethoscope in Willmar are transmitted to St. Cloud where the clinician can hear them through headphones.

“AMD is a telehealth company that has always been dependable, and extremely knowledgeable in assisting with choosing the right equipment to meet our needs. Their customer service and technical support of our programs has been impeccable.”

Dr. Lisa Gwynn

Interim Division Chief, Child and Adolescent Health / University of Miami Miller School of Medicine
