Health District joins with Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians

 

Health District CEO Bill McMillan announced recently that, effective July 1, Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians, a medical group managed by EM Care, a national emergency department staffing company, will assume staffing for Curry General Hospital’s Emergency Department. 

According to McMillan, Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians and EM Care will allow the hospital to have access to a deeper pool of board certified emergency physicians.

 

“The most important change is that, through Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians, we’ll have a physician on site 24/7,” McMillan said. EM Care is known for its patient-focused practices including customer service training for its physicians, next day call backs, quality assurance programs, and the ability to treat a broader variety of problems in the emergency department, reducing the need to transfer a patient to a higher level of care.

The district would like the public to know one other change: Because Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians is a separate medical group from the hospital, patients using the emergency department will receive a billing from the hospital and a billing from the physicians’ group.

    The Armonk, New York-based technology company said its services will be based remotely in the cloud, and offer companies ways to make use of the new and multiplying sources of data such as building sensors, smartphones and home appliances to enhance their own products. For its first major partnership, IBM said a unit of the Weather Co will move its weather data services onto IBM's cloud, so that customers can use the data in tandem with IBM's analytics tools. As a result, IBM is hoping that companies will be able to combine live weather forecasting with a range of business data, so companies can quickly adapt to customer buying patterns or supply chain issues connected to the weather. For example, insurance companies could send messages to policyholders in certain areas when hailstorms are approaching and tell them safe places to park, saving money all round.
