Our telemedicine program uses videoconferencing to connect you with health care team members with large medical centers in order to provide patient access to specialty care not available in the immediate area. Through the use of cameras, microphones and TV monitors, your primary care physician can be linked to advanced medical specialists and allow a real-time interactive diagnostic consultation and follow-up care. Through telemedicine, the patient and the specialist can see and hear one another to promote the line of communication. The specialist asks questions and carries out an exam just as if the patient were making a regular, in-person visit to the doctor.
The benefits of telemedicine technology include:
- Avoid time-consuming and costly travel.
- Receive care from an expanded range of specialists.
- Receive tests and treatment in the local community.
