Two hundred forty-five thousand patients seek care at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. They battle lengthy commutes, costly procedures, and limited specialty care in order to consult their physicians. Implementing telemedical procedures at hospitals such at LRMC is believed to reduce travel time, decrease costs, and increase specialization. Healthcare providers who were trained in Tele ENT procedures unanimously accepted the technology as an alternative way to care for patients. Expansion of telemedical procedures in hospitals is deemed to reduce health care costs and to be accepted by providers.
