TELEMEDICINE: Healthcare that goes the distance.
WHAT is Telemedicine?
Carson Valley Medical Center's Telemedicine program uses secure video conferencing technology to enable long-distance medical care between patients in the Carson Valley and medical providers and specialists throughout northern Nevada.
WHY use Telemedicine?
Telemedicine allows convenient access to medical expertise not available in all communities. Patients stay close to work, home and family while minimizing the cost and hassle of long-distance travel for medical care.
WHEN to use Telemedicine?
Telemedicine can be used for clinic-based services such as visits with primary care providers, or for initial visits with a specialist. It can also be used for hospital-based services such as emergency care.
HOW do I access Telemedicine?
