Telehealth at the University of Louisville

 

The University of Louisville Telemedicine Center was opened as a directive from Kentucky House Bill 177 in 2001. This directive paved the way for a statewide video conferencing network. The purpose of this network is to deliver clinical, educational and administrative programming to healthcare facilities throughout the entire state of Kentucky. The network took the name “Kentucky Telehealth Network”. Current programming provided by UofL includes specialists in Louisville reading echocardiograms via the network. In the past this process required facilities taping an echo on a VCR tape and mailing it to Louisville. Results were not confirmed for 2 to 4 days after the echo had been recorded. Now these can be read while the patient is in the rural office. Follow-up consultations for open heart patients have saved patients a whole day of travel to Louisville in some cases. This is especially positive in providing a standard of care to rural patients that many times miss follow-up appointments due to the expense, inconvenience and stress of traveling hours for an office visit.


 

Educational Programming

 

In addition the University of Louisville offers a multitude of educational programming. This includes Grand Round lectures offering Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits: Anesthesiology, Internal Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Cardiovascular, Medical Education, Psychiatry and Behavioral Science. For information on how to receive CME credit, contact the Telemedicine office (502) 852-1559. You can watch or participate in Grand Rounds here:
