Winona Health to offer $40 teleconsultations to its patients


Winona Health in Minnesota is launching a telemedicine program that will let consumers have remote consultations with Winona doctors.

The rural health provider is working toward adoption of value-based contracts as it focuses on community wellness, says Rachelle Schulz, CEO at Winona. The organization includes a 49-bed hospital, 110-bed nursing home and more than 90 other providers.

“We are committed to improving access to high-quality care that is also convenient and affordable,” she explains. “Between busy schedules and high-deductible insurance, convenience and affordability are increasingly important to people.”

The delivery system is working with telehealth vendor Bright.md and electronic health record vendor Cerner on the initiative.

Bright.md’s SmartExam virtual care platform enables patients to seek care for more than 400 medical conditions using a smartphone or computer. Providers can review information from the patient, the electronic medical record and other sources, and the records are automatically updated after treatment. Patients will receive treatment plans and any necessary prescriptions often within an hour.
