Telemedicine improves care for kids seen in rural ERs

Reuters, August 20, 2013
(Reuters Health) - Telemedicine consults can help rural emergency room doctors provide better care to seriously ill or injured young patients, new research confirms. Rural hospitals and doctors' offices are increasingly using telemedicine - essentially, videoconferencing with another doctor from a remote location - to gain access to specialty care, Dr. James Marcin of the University of California Davis Children's Hospital in Sacramento, the senior author of the new study, told Reuters Health. "It's a great way to leverage technology to improve the quality of care that we provide," he said.
