Infectious Disease Connect (ID Connect) has been successfully utilizing telemedicine and bringing ID specialty services to hospitals since 2013. ID Connect brings a team of world-class ID Specialists to hospitals in a cost-effective manner. ID Connect provides primary expertise, back-fill support, or staff augmentation.

The avoidable risks, complex costs, and increasing regulatory requirements associated with not having an ID specialist make Infectious Disease Connect a logical choice as a primary telemedicine partner to hospitals.

Outcomes

Decrease antibiotic misuse, improve infection-related morbidity and mortality, and reduce health care associated infections.

Risks

Eliminate inaccurate diagnosis and treatment, reduce health care associated infections, avoid penalties and negative impacts of regulatory non-compliance.

Savings

Reduce infections, reduce patient transfers to tertiary facilities, reduce readmissions, and narrow antibiotic use.
