(CS5-01) Remote Patient Monitoring in Rural Mississippi

Monday, April 24
10:15 AM - 10:44 AM
Location: W224 AB

The University of Mississippi Medical Center's Center for Telehealth launched The Mississippi Diabetes Telehealth Network in August 2014 to pilot an advanced healthcare model on patients with uncontrolled diabetes living in the Mississippi Delta. At the Center for Telehealth, our active multidisciplinary team works together to provide individual disease management plans for patients which would not otherwise have access to this type of care without telehealth. By providing access to our telehealth network, this program is helping improve care coordination and strengthening connections between clinicians and patients beyond the walls of a hospital in a way which is reducing the use of higher acuity clinical settings, such as the ER.
