Using virtual health technology to connect clinicians to world-class specialists, telecardiology can allow patients to be treated closer to home, in their communities.

Get Started

World-Class Care Closer to Home

The high cost of specialty care means patients facing complex cardiovascular issues often are transferred out of their communities and away from their loved ones. These transfers take an enormous emotional and financial toll on families and facilities. Telecardiology can help keep patients closer to home.

Using real-time audio/video and appropriate peripheral devices such as a stethoscope, virtual health specialists are able to provide consultations in the emergency department or on the inpatient floor. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, our telecardiology program can help manage complex patients who might have had to otherwise seek treatment elsewhere.
