Vigilias was founded by physicians hoping to bridge the provider gap between urban and rural areas using telemedicine. Our providers trained in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, and a variety of specialties. All are board-certified or board-eligible, and have experience working in most settings, from tertiary referral centers to small hospitals, as well as the emergency room, urgent care, and outpatient clinics. Several of us live in or have close ties to Kansas.
Some of our doctors worked in rural communities in the past, while others have never seen a hay bale in person. Regardless of past experience however, all of us are dedicated to the core idea that rural health matters, and that the time has come to use modern communication technology to significantly expand the capacity of rural hospitals and providers to offer their patients local access to care that once required a long trip to a large city.
