24/7 referral, consult, admission, and transport assistance.
Connecting through 24/7 care
Children’s Minnesota partners with a growing number of health care systems in Minnesota and Wisconsin to deliver virtual consultation services for neonatal stabilization and pediatric emergency medicine. These virtual care services connect clinical staff at the partner site with 24/7, year-round access to Children’s Minnesota pediatric and neonatal specialists through real-time, interactive audio and visual tools.
Provider-to-provider telemedicine consultations allow health care providers from different specialties to review patient cases and discuss diagnoses and treatment options with the goal of delivering specialty care closer to the child’s home.
About our virtual care services
As a Children’s Minnesota virtual partner, your health care system, providers and patients will have direct access to Children’s Minnesota specialty care and consultations using encrypted, HIPAA-compliant telecommunications technology.
We do not take over your patient’s care, but instead serve as an addition to your health care team. Your attending physician virtually consults with our specialists to review cases and discuss diagnoses and treatment options.
