UMMC's Center for TeleHealth is dedicated to bringing quality healthcare to patients in need through the use of technology.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth brings care and learning to people remotely, in every part of Mississippi. Using online video and other technology, telehealth delivers medical treatment, health education and public health services that make long-distance patient care possible. UMMC's telehealth services are coordinated through the Center for TeleHealth, under the direction of Kristi Henderson, DNP.
Goals of Telehealth
- Improve access to care.
- Reduce healthcare disparities.
- Create efficiencies in healthcare delivery.
