FiveStar Telehealth Clinic will become mobile by the end of 2020. The clinic, currently located at Langboard MDF in Willacoochee, is a partnership between Langdale Industries, Chancy Drugs, Miller County Hospital, Clinch Memorial Hospital and the Global Partnership for Telehealth (GPT) and is open from 7 a.m. - noon and 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. every other week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
The clinic is staffed by Jennifer Griffin (TLC Benefit Solutions), Sonny Walker, RN (Employee Health Advocate) a phlebotomist from Clinch Memorial Hospital to provide lab services and a physician or a Nurse Practitioner from Miller County Hospital.
The clinic is available to employees covered by the Company’s Health Plan whether or not they have a primary care physician.
The employee may request an appointment by contacting Jennifer Griffin at TLC Benefit Solutions 229-249-0940. As with any other provider, registration paperwork is completed at the first appointment.
An RN will take the patient’s vital signs, review patient symptoms, and then the patient is seen via computer by a Miller County Hospital provider.
The clinic telemedicine equipment is supplied by GPT. The 3M Littman electronic Bluetooth enabled stethoscope allows the physician to hear the patient’s heartbeat in real time. The Horus Scope captures a digital photograph or video of the ear or skin abnormality and provides measurements to track change in size. An EKG machine is available for use as well.
Labs are drawn by a phlebotomist from Clinch Memorial Hospital staff on site at no cost to the employee. Lab results are uploaded to Miller County Hospital’s system and may be forwarded to the employee’s primary care physician upon patient request.
