The telemedicine service, also known as telehealth, driven by patient demand, is offered through various medical services (as listed below) at University of Utah Health Care. The services supported include telephone consultations, emails between providers and patients, electronic medical records, digital radiology services, pager and cell phone communications among others.
The Telemedicine Department was created to provide centralized direction, coordination and support for this initiative as performed by practitioners. Our office trains and supports staff members to perform these functions. We can also assist you in coding for services properly and tracking your success in obtaining compensation.
