Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC)

Case Study

SEARHC saves time, money, and improves care, coordination, and collaboration system-wide with TigerConnect

One of the most impactful results for Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) use of TigerConnect involves the transfer of patients via medevacs. Now, the ability to consult with remote specialists can quickly determine whether or not a patient even needs a medevac trip to a larger hospital at a cost savings of $80,000 per trip.

Additionally, there’s no more wasting time to find out who the on-call physician is or how to reach him or her through role-based scheduling. As a result of TigerConnect’s use in nearly all departments, even including in Financial Services, SEARHC has reduced patient wait times, improved care coordination, and vastly improved communication across the entire health system.
