Telemedicine
 

The Health Promotion Disease Prevention Program is embarking in its efforts to initiate a Telemedicine Program. Telemedicine is the practice of service between a provider and patient through technology via computer, phone or other portable devices. Two-way voice and visual communication is used to offer health care to patients.  The use of telemedicine allows for patients to access advanced medical and mental health care through the connection with contracted Physicians, Pediatricians, and other specialty doctors and providers. Services will be provided under the school based health centers across the Fort Peck Indian Reservation and alternative sites are identified to link children and patients directly with various licensed medical and mental health providers.

Dental Mobile Unit

The Fort Peck Tribes HPDP Program is bringing quality dental care to each of the communities on the Reservation with the new Mobile Dental Unit. This mobile unit has three complete dental operatories. State of the Art equipment is available at each of the dental chairs. All aspects of dental care, including X-ray exams, Tele-dentistry, and a small lab for processing and repair of dental prosthesis will be available. Care provided by licensed dental hygienists will always be available and until full-time dentists are recruited, we will have locum dentists that comply with the HIS requirements to practice dentistry, when they are available. The unit has access for all handicap needs. The providers will see patients of all ages, from preschool to the elder community. School children will be required to have the same permission documents necessary for all other HPDP services in each of the schools. The dental unit will be parked at each of the Reservation Schools, which will provide the necessary electrical and water necessary for the mobile unit. Good dental health is one of the most significant aspects of health promotion because poor dental health can be the precursor of diabetes, heart disease, and many other conditions that affect all of us on the Reservation.
