Telemedicine and Healthcare – A Pioneering 21st Century Medicine
Telemedicine may seem revolutionary. The concept of a physician “beaming” into a hospital room may seem like Star Trek Healthcare. You may wonder at the efficacy, when the physician is a face on a TV monitor.
Truth is, telemedicine is a proven effective practice in medical care — with highly skilled medical TeleSpecialists, advanced audio/video/sensory technology, working with well-trained on-site teams.
Eagle Telemedicine has been at the forefront of this movement. Eagle’s expansion in service delivery across the country provides proof-of-concept for telemedicine and healthcare. We have some great clinical partners — physicians all over the world — helping to steward our way forward in this space.
