When Minutes Matter: Using Telemedicine for Urgent Care

Posted on

Sponsored by: Insight

Telemedicine is a technology of time and space, linking the consumer to the doctor when and where a health issue occurs, no matter where each person is located.  That’s especially true when the health issue is urgent, and there’s no time to rush to the appropriate hospital or find the needed specialist. When minutes matter, a telemedicine platform just might mean the difference between life and death.

From instant access to a doctor to hospital-based services like stroke care, health systems like the University of Mississippi Medical Center have used telemedicine to provide urgent and critical care services to their patients. This, in fact, has helped UMMC earn the recent distinction of being named one of two National Telehealth Centers of Excellence.

Join Michael Adcock, Executive Director of UMMC’s Center of Telehealth, as he explains how the health system uses telemedicine to deliver urgent care when it’s needed. He’ll explain how patients access the network and are evaluated, and how the health system marshals the resources necessary to meet that patient’s critical care needs.
