What is Telemedicine?
According to the American Telemedicine Association: "Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve patients’ health status."
Videoconferencing, transmissions of still images, e-health including patient portals, remote monitoring of vital signs, continuing medical education, and nursing call centers, are all considered part of Telemedicine.
St. Joseph’s unique and extensive Telemedicine capabilities allow us to share important medical content. Our Telemedicine program is currently used to:
- Collaborate with other health institutions, in and out of the State of New Jersey, on challenging cases
- Provide specialty pediatric services to neighboring counties
- Bring better efficiencies to the delivery of health services across St. Joseph’s Healthcare System
- Support Medical Missions for Children in providing high quality healthcare for needy children around the world.
