This is today’s Yavapai Regional

These are exciting times at Yavapai Regional Medical Center. The introduction of Virtually Integrated Care (VIC) has ushered in an amazing new era in nursing. Our smartphone-based, AI-powered technologies, ERAdvisor and CareAdvisor, are giving patients more control and real-time information during their ER and hospital visits. And our state-of-the-art, minimally invasive neurosurgery and new DaVinci Xi robotic-assisted general surgery underline our across-the-board commitment to apply the latest in medical technology and innovation to constantly improve care for our patients—who are also our family, our friends, and our neighbors. And of course, all of our services are delivered by the finest, most professional people anywhere. Truth is, while we’ve been here for more than 80 years, in many ways we’re just getting started. Welcome to the New Era at Yavapai Regional.

ERAdvisor and CareAdvisor: Leveraging AI‑Powered Technology to Benefit Patients

For the past year, people arriving to the Emergency Rooms of Dignity Health YRMC in Prescott and Prescott Valley have been offered an advanced AI‑powered technology called ERAdvisor.

It give them instant and complete information about their ER visit.
