Patients of Appleton Area Health Services will benefit from the latest technological advances that expand patients’ access to quality emergency care and pharmacy services, made possible through a grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust has awarded Appleton Area Health Services (AAHS) $381,836 for eCare, a program that gives physicians immediate access to specialists and pharmacists 24 hours a day. The grant will be used to purchase equipment connecting local physicians with specialists and pharmacists.
Appleton Area Health Services will receive equipment for two types of eCare: eEmergency and ePharmacy. eEmergency ensures that board-certified emergency physicians and emergency-trained nurses are available to assist local providers in treating trauma, heart attack, stroke and other critical conditions. ePharmacy provides 24-hour access to hospital-trained pharmacists, making it possible for all prescriptions to be reviewed prior to the patient taking the medication, even when the on-staff pharmacist is not available.
“This incredible gift gives local physicians and health care workers an immediate connection to specialty care and pharmacists even if they live in rural areas having fewer physicians and health professionals,” says Jeffrey A. Cook, CEO AAHS “This keeps patients close to home during treatment.”
The Rural Healthcare Program of The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust began awarding grants in 2009. In the last two years, The Trust has awarded more than $185 million in grants to nonprofit organizations in the region.
The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, established in 1999, supports a diverse range of organizations with a major focus on health and medical research, human services, education and conservation. To date, The Trust has announced more than $958 million in grants to charitable organizations.
