What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration.

Telehealth allows patients to see doctors from hospitals out of our region and to do follow-up appointments or have regular appointments with specialists outside of our region, without having to travel.

Technologies used in telehealth - videoconferencing, the Internet store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, satellite and wireless communications - already exist, but are not part of the regular landscape of our rural and urban underserved people.

For more information about telehealth, please contact Louise Blake at 229-1740 Ext.331

To call Telehealth directly, dial 1-866-797-0000

Wilson Memorial General Hospital has  implemented two additonal telehealth site for use in educational sessions and for rehabilitation purposes. This eliminates scheduling conflicts with the clinical site, and patients who need to see specialists. This is also a great opportunity for teleconference educational purposes, as well.
