Telemedicine Clinics

Telemedicine is a virtual consultation with a physician that provides access to evaluation and treatment for patients in remote areas. Many small, rural hospitals lack specialists in various disciplines, and telemedicine allows much of the needed care to be delivered through the use of simple applications that are similar to FaceTime or Skype with extra precautions built in to maintain privacy. We can utilize telemedicine to connect with patients who live far away or are too ill to travel.

The WVU Heart and Vascular Institute has taken steps to utilize this technology and bring world-class heart care to rural communities, helping rural physicians and hospitals
deliver the highest possible quality of care to their communities.

Telemedicine services include consultations or follow-up for:

  • Artery Disease
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Valvular Heart Disease
  • Heart Rhythm Disorders
  • Hypertension
  • Pre-Op Clearance
  • General Cardiac Need Management
