Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems provides health services across central, eastern, and northern Maine, offering a continuum of services to strengthen the nine counties and communities they serve and improve the healthcare system. The system oversees numerous long-term care facilities and home care organizations. In addition they have emergency medical transportation services and LifeFlight, the states only medical helicopter. They are working on a number of initiatives to improve the quality of healthcare services to rural Maine. In partnership with DHHS and HRSA and their hospital network they are implementing telehealth services to reduce the number of unnecessary transfers, improve efficiency by improving communication and adherence to clinical protocols. They are also using telehealth to monitor and improve the self-management of Diabetes.
