Legacy Telehealth Program
This program provides infrastructure, coordination and support for the electronic exchange of medical information between Legacy's hospitals and providers and our medical partners throughout the region. These exchanges include:
- Direct patient care
- Referral services
- Exchange of medical records and test results
- Ongoing patient monitoring
- Continuing medical education
Through Legacy Telehealth, community hospitals and rural providers have 24/7 access to Legacy's expert emergency physicians and our full range of adult and pediatric specialists and sub-specialists. This access contributes to:
- Prompt and accurate diagnosis
- Development and implementation of appropriate treatment plans
- Improved clinical outcomes
- Increased patient satisfaction
The Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel recently launched a telehealth service to provide pediatric support to emergency department physicians within the six-hospital Legacy Health system.
One aspect of the Legacy Telehealth Program is our telemedicine service, which allows Legacy physicians to perform comprehensive real-time consultations with patients in remote locations.
