Sanford Reaches To Bakken With Mobile Med

Posted: Updated:
A few months ago we told you about the early phases of Sanford Health's Mobile Med service. Well now, that service is ready to be put to good use in the western part of the state.

The mobile med clinics will not only provide employment physicals, and acute care for sore throats, coughs and other illnesses, but the staff on board also has the ability to interact with doctors back at Sanford clinics using a system called Tele-Health.

"We have the ability to view them in HD. It's a very clear image of them. We can examine a skin lesion with a special scope, we can look in their throat. We can listen to their heart and lungs with a stethoscope that's attached to this unit," says Dr. Joel Blanchard.
