What is TeleMedicine?
Telemedicine is the use of modern telecommunications technology to provide interactive healthcare. This is the cutting edge in healthcare and will enable patients to receive constant medical attention 24/7. Patients can forego many uncomfortable visits to hospitals, emergency rooms and doctors' offices, receiving healthcare from home or nursing facility.

Telemedicine improves the access and convenience of healthcare. There is no time spent in waiting rooms; it assures patient privacy; it avoids unnecessary hospital readmissions and is much more cost efficient.

How does EMC TeleMedicine work?
  1. We install a monitor, camera, and diagnostic tools at your facility.
  2. When one of your residents has an emergency or you need advice, you call and connect with us.
  3. The patient is seen via camera by our medical staff.
  4. We order tests if needed and notify you when results are back.
  5. If a transfer to a hospital ER is needed, we arrange transport, creating a seemless process for the patient and your staff.

Does Medicare pay for TeleMedicine?
Medicare now covers interactive audio-video telecommunication services for patients at skilled nursing facilities in areas of "rural health professional shortage" or "in a county that is not included in a Metropolitan Statistical Area."
