Our children: adorable, germ-catching, frequently running-nosed.
You can’t stop kids from getting sick, but you can treat them from the comfort of home.
Providing Care at a Distance
Through videoconferencing and store and forward technologies, the Pediatric Telemedicine Program:
- Provides outpatient visits and access to highly skilled pediatric specialists in rural and outreach communities.
- Allows us to consistently meet urgent, emergent, and scheduled outpatient needs of young patients regionally and around the world.
- Offers remote training and education for nurses and physicians at community hospitals.
In a large percentage of pediatric cases, the physician is able to treat your child at home with a prescription or non-prescription therapy. Keep them away from the germs in the waiting room.
We all know that infants and children get sick more frequently than adults. And parents are naturally concerned when their children aren’t feeling like themselves.
Does it Work?
With Pediatric Telemedicine, physicians can evaluate your child’s condition immediately. You’ll know whether their injury or illness requires in-person medical attention or not. In most cases, the physicians are able to treat your child at home with a prescription or non-prescription therapy and/or resolve any specific medical questions you have.
Avoid the wait and germs of the waiting room
By using Pediatric Telemedicine technology to meet with a physician, you can help keep your child away from unnecessary exposure to the Healthcare Associated Infections and help prevent the spread of infectious diseases like the flu.
