Emerging Markets - Innovation/Pilot Programs

The ongoing eCARE innovation process encourages pilot projects to serve new populations and clinical specialties. Emerging markets currently under review at Avera eCARE include:

  • Employers and workplaces
  • K-12 schools
  • Congregate living situations, such as higher education residence halls
  • Accountable care organizations
  • Home care
  • Retail locations
  • International disaster response and relief organizations, such as NATO

We continually look for telehealth partnerships that create ways to:

  • Deliver timely treatment for a wide range of health conditions and intervention before they become serious or acute
  • Support local economies by providing high-quality health care for workers/patients close to home
  • Maintain availability of health care services in critical access facilities and rural communities
  • Improve health care provider work/life balance, recruiting and retention

What Our Clients Say

  • "School nurses play an integral role in ensuring that students are healthy and ready to learn. After identifying a need for better access to our nursing services across our large school district, eCARE worked with us hand-in-hand to develop a custom solution and pilot the eCARE School Nurse project, which dramatically increased our students’ access to a school nurse. In the short time that this project has been in place, over 2,000 students were provided access to a school nurse when they otherwise would not have had access. This program is invaluable in the care we provide to students. eCARE has been a great partner and we’re now working on plans for further expansion"

    Health Services Supervisor/ District 504 Coordinator

  • "We had the opportunity to partner with eCARE and pilot a new virtual workplace clinic with our staff. eCARE has been great for our employees – whenever they’d like to chat with a health care provider, they can step in to our dedicated room and connect almost instantly with a general practitioner. We love being a part of this groundbreaking work – and our employees couldn’t be happier with the added benefit."
