Blanchfield Army Community Hospital Public Affairs

The virtual house call pilot is similar to healthcare’s origin, when medical providers visited patients’ homes; however, it is now offered through real-time streaming.

“The virtual house call, which makes more sense to the end user, is something that we are excited to pilot at Blanchfield and are eager to broaden our capabilities in the near future,” said Col. Telita Crosland, BACH commander.

On the first day of the BACH virtual “house call” appointments, BACH saved patients around 120 minutes in waiting time and another 120 minutes of travel time for a total of 240 minutes.

In a demonstration of the virtual health process, Lt. Col. Kevin A. Horde, a provider at Fort Gordon's Eisenhower Medical Center, offers remote consultation to mock patient Master Sgt. Jason H.
