Ness County Hospital Outpatient Specialty Clinic

Tele-Endocrinology Services

Eagle Telemedicine

There is a dire shortage of Endocrinologists available in the U.S. Over 38 million Americans suffer from diabetes, in addition to the estimated 8 million who remain undiagnosed, yet there are only around 8,000 total Endocrinologists available nationwide. There is a huge disparity between the amount of patients needing care and the number of qualified physicians who can provide that care. This disparity is further exacerbated for patients living in rural areas.

Although 85% of those living with diabetes rely solely on their primary care providers for treatment, some patients may have more complex cases and need to be examined by a specialist. Endocrine-related disorders are often highly medicated – careful administration and monitoring is critical.
