Education about addiction is the first step in opening a dialogue about the addiction and getting treatment for yourself or someone close to you.

With substance abuse and addiction such widespread problems in the United States and around the world, one might assume that this question — “What is an addiction?” — would not be a difficult question for most adults to answer. Addiction is a chronic, progressive disease that affects more than 23 million Americans, yet only one in 10 will get the help they need.

Telehealth enables care to be delivered anywhere to those in need using smartphone, tablet or computer.

Mortality in the ICU “is trending 40 percent less than predicted, by virtually monitoring ICUs 24/7, we’re getting to problems earlier. The result is that in the past year Mercy sent home 1,000 ICU patients who otherwise would have been expected to die and saved $40 million.”
