Teleheatlh Clinical Services 

Telehealth utilizes technology to link patients to health care from a distance. 

Using live two-way videoconferencing health care providers can utilize the latest tele-diagnostic instruments, including digital stethoscopes, patient examination cameras, and digital imaging to enable a remote patient to "visit" an out-of-town health care provider from their home community. 

Teleheatlh has been found to be particularly effective for follow-up appointments, triage decisions, pre-admision work-ups, and inital consultation in some specialties.
