STATIONMD PROVIDES TELEHEALTH SERVICES TO MOSAIC
Mosaic in Nebraska Begins Use of Specialized Telemedicine Service
MAPLEWOOD, New Jersey – As part of their ongoing mission to improve the quality of medical care for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), StationMD is bringing their specialized telehealth solution to Nebraska, by partnering with the whole-person healthcare organization Mosaic. StationMD brings high-quality medical services to individuals in their home setting—and reduces unnecessary emergency department and urgent care utilization—by providing 24/7 immediate access to board-certified physicians who are specially trained to treat people with IDD.
Mosaic has partnered with StationMD to deploy its telemedicine solution in 32 group homes and intermediate care facilities (ICFs) across six regions in Nebraska, which will enable 255 individuals with IDD to access immediate medical care anytime they need it. Nationwide, StationMD telemedicine is currently operational in over 12,000 locations.
Mosaic provides a wide range of services in the home and community for adults with IDD. Using a person-centered approach, the group brings together funders, family members, other trusted friends and, most importantly, the person served to figure out which services will be the right fit to help achieve an individual’s goals.
StationMD’s Chief Strategy Officer, Dr. Maulik Trivedi, noted, “We are honored to be working with Mosaic to help them provide the individuals they serve with the best possible medical care. Our virtual evaluations are very easy to initiate and our team of board-certified physicians understands the stress associated with a trip to the ER or doctor’s office. All StationMD physicians have special expertise and training to meet the complex medical needs of individuals with IDD and are available within minutes. The COVID-19 crisis only underscores the value and urgency of our services and has proven to keep both individuals and support staff safe.”
Linda Timmons, Mosaic President and CEO said, “We’re excited for this opportunity to partner with StationMD. It will allow the people we support to connect with medical professionals who specialize in serving people with disabilities, while at the same time protecting their safety through virtual visits in this time of pandemic. Many of those we support live in rural communities, so the immediate access to a doctor who understands their needs strengthens our call to love and serve people.”
