Telemedicine

PinnacleHealth Telemedicine provides the real-time expertise of PinnacleHealth providers through video conferencing technology. Guided by evidence based medicine and clinical practice guidelines, telemedicine is a safe and cost-effective way to provide more efficient healthcare resulting in better patient outcomes.  Patients are cared for by nurses and physicians on site while the patient, family and providers consult with an expert physician via the mobile video conferencing unit or “robot”. During the examination, the doctor has full access to the patient’s medical records and any laboratory tests or imaging studies that may have been completed.
