Windom Area Health’s CEO, Shelby Medina, explains the need for the service, “In healthcare, physician burnout is a real thing, especially in rural settings where primary care providers work in a clinic all day, along with care for their patients in the hospital around the clock. Not only is this difficult on our providers, but it also makes it difficult to recruit new providers to rural communities, that may be looking for more work/life balance.”

Windom Area Health’s Governing Board, medical staff, and leadership team, have all identified that retaining current medical staff is a strategic priority, along with being able to attract new clinical talent to our communities for generations to come.

 “We are honored to partner with Windom Area Health to further support caring for patients in the

Windom community,” says Dr. Waseem Ghannam, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of TeleHealth Solution™. ”Our board-certified virtual care physicians work in collaboration with the local providers who are onsite at Windom, providing care to patients during night and weekend hours. This will allow current providers to spend more time with their families and loved ones, helping combat physician burnout.”

TeleHealth Solution™ includes services encompassing technology and highly trained clinical providers that facilitate patient-centered virtual experiences, allowing patients to stay healthier onsite, and healthcare facilities to differentiate themselves and add new revenue streams.
