Help from afar: Teton Valley Hospital uses telemedicine to assist patients

Within the past few months, Teton Valley Hospital added telestroke and teleburn services offered through the University of Utah Health Care. The telemedicine program uses a tele-robot, which can be manipulated by the on-call doctor. The doctor appears on a screen where the robot’s “face” is and can communicate through the robot. This specific robot technology is compatible with the University of Utah, St. John’s Medical Center and Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.
