As telemedicine continues to revolutionize the practice of medicine, one of the most heartfelt ways telemedicine is making a difference is affecting rural populations. Telemedicine provides healthcare organizations (large and small) the ability to deliver care to patients who might not otherwise receive it; due to the shortage of specialists at the closet facility or distance barriers.

An ever increasing number of healthcare providers are setting up telehealth clinics in places their patients frequent, such as local retail stores. Attend this webinar to find out how MercyCare Community Physicians has adopted telemedicine technology to deliver clinical telemedicine encounters.

This webinar is aimed to help rural healthcare providers that want to get a clearer depiction of what clinical telemedicine encounters are, the benefits they provide to both patients and providers and specific examples of how it is used to deliver mainstream care to rural and under-served populations.
