Telehealth Resources

Many people don’t understand how telemedicine can be used to deliver quality healthcare at a distance. In this video, we show you a nurse and patient at one end of the videoconference and the doctor in her office at the other end. Telemedicine is cost-effective and convenient for both the patients and the physician. At GlobalMed, we train physicians and “presenters” (who are with the patient) how to use the equipment as well as best telemedicine practices.
