As technology continues to advance, medical practice evolves with it and physicians continuously search for the best ways to treat patients. You can now access medicinal services and information that previously would be unavailable, all with the innovation of telemedicine. Telemedicine allows healthcare professionals to use electronic communication technology to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients remotely, with convenient, efficient access to medical expertise.
The physicians at Fox Medical Centers utilize telemedicine to consult with specialists at other facilities for the best possible treatment options, or in the case of a patient transfer to receive a higher level of care. Diagnostic images, test results, and medical histories can now be shared with consulting physicians in the blink of an eye for diagnoses, and development of treatment plans.
Through the usage of telemedicine, our patients and staff benefit from a harmonious partnership between Fox Medical Centers and additional facilities that may provide more complex or specialized care to expedite treatment locally. This state-of-the-art technology allows physicians at other medical facilities to view medical images and documents while maintaining the standard of patient confidentiality.
