What is StationMD?
StationMD was founded by emergency medicine physicians who recognized a need for better quality care for individuals with I/DD. Our team of board certified physicians deliver superior medical care to people with I/DD in their homes through easy to use telehealth technology. Our physicians all have a special commitment to caring for people with I/DD and have dedicated training in this area.
How StationMD can help you?
We understand the difficulties in transporting a loved one to the emergency room (ER) and using StationMD helps to minimize these transports. A trip to the ER can be particularly frightening and disorienting as well as potentially exposes individuals to infection. The daily routine of meals, activities, sleeping, and medications is also disrupted. StationMD is quick and easy access to a highly specialized physician from the comfort of home 24 hours a day. The physician will be able to communicate with the individual, support staff, family members, and even personal physicians caring for an individual all at the same time. If a visit to the ER is needed, the StationMD physician will call the ER to provide the medical history and reason for the visit (e.g. x-ray only) to help expedite the process.
