Telemedicine allows patients to receive care by a medical specialist, who may be located in another city or area of the country, without having to travel to see them in person. Patients experience real-time visits with medical professionals by using a computer and special electronic equipment. The computer is specifically designed with a camera and audio so the specialist and you can talk.

Examples of telemedicine include:

  • Video consultations with specialists
  • Remote medical evaluations and diagnoses
  • Digital transmission of medical imaging

This site will provide you with education resources that will assist you in having a better understanding of telemedicine. There is both a handout and a video that will allow you to see a patient experience with telemedicine. Any questions that you may have after viewing the information, please ask your provider or the nursing staff.
