What does a telemedicine partnership look like? These examples illustrate the broad range of applications possible. We've:
- Partnered with the Healthy Appalachia Institute at UVA-Wise to launch the Appalachian Telemental Health Network, establishing a behavioral/mental health network for the underserved Appalachian counties of Virginia
- Developed shared tumor boards via telemedicine links to evaluate patients and discuss a multidisciplinary approach to treating them
- Equipped local ambulances with the iTREAT mobile telemedicine kit, which allows our specially trained stroke neurologists and emergency medicine doctors to diagnose stroke patients while in the ambulance and enable treatment to begin as soon as patients arrive at the hospital.
