UTMB’s telemedicine programs have revolutionized medical care
By combining sophisticated video-conferencing capabilities, comprehensive electronic medical records, proven disease management guidelines and quality monitoring systems, UTMB’s telemedicine has revolutionized medical care. These changes have amounted to a redefinition of telemedicine into an integrated, multidisciplinary health care delivery system – one offering unparalleled access, seamless continuity and infinite possibilities.
During the last 15 years, UTMB has advanced telemedicine to sustainable clinical, educational and research programs operating statewide, serving both uninsured populations and commercial clients. Telemedicine clinical programs encompass adult, pediatrics, mental health, employee health programs, and adult primary care.
UTMB Telemedicine, along with its research and evaluation center, The UTMB Center for Telehealth Research and Policy, has helped develop and promote new telemedicine practice models, and established meaningful collaborative projects with a host of distinguished partners that benefit underserved patient populations across Texas, the nation, and the world.
