Connecting patients and providers
As telemedicine grows, it has quickly become integrated into the operations of hospitals, specialty departments, home health agencies, private physician offices and more. Northern Arizona Healthcare is no exception.
Telemedicine includes videoconferencing, transmitting still images, remote monitoring of vital signs, eHealth, continuing medical education and nursing call centers.
As one of the few hub and spoke hospitals in the U.S., we're bridging the distance between patients and providers in new, exciting ways.
Healthcare from the comfort of home
Today, it's becoming more and more common for a patient to use a wireless phone to automatically upload his or her vital signs before sending it to a remote monitoring center hundreds of miles away.
This is especially useful for chronically ill patients who live in rural areas. By connecting from home, patients can reduce unnecessary travel time and medical expenses.
Looking ahead, our goal is to use the latest technological advances to provide the best possible healthcare for you and your family – no matter where you live.
