ADHS is an independent network, operating hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic centres.
It currently provides care in Houston and Dallas, along with the new location in Odessa.
West Texas recently enacted House Bill 617 to enhance emergency healthcare in remote areas, reported The Texas Tribune.
It focuses on implementing emergency telemedicine in ambulances.
A pilot programme at Texas Tech University employs video calls and wireless monitoring to connect healthcare workers with remote doctors, improving critical patient care in areas with limited hospital access.
The initiative’s first iteration demonstrated its ability to lower fatalities by one third.
Despite funding challenges after initial approval in 2015, the programme has been reinstated with legislative backing, with plans for expansion in rural regions.
