Legacy telemedicine service

Legacy recently partnered with InTouch Health to invest in the equipment for telemedicine, which is one aspect of our Telehealth Program.

Using RP-LiteTM Remote Presence technology, Legacy physicians now perform comprehensive real-time consultations with patients in remote locations. Telemedicine allows us to extend our expertise to a broad range of locations: clinics, emergency rooms, rural hospitals, long-term care communities and more.
