California hospital uses telemedicine to fight infection
Sonoma Index-Tribune, April 3, 2008
California's Sonoma Valley Hospital is fighting infections with the use of telemedicine. The hospital is partnering with UC Davis Medical Center to allow staff at Sonoma Valley to get expert opinion on infection cases using the state of the art technology. Using new technology and an Internet hookup, Sonoma Valley staff can instantly contact a physician at UC Davis, who then can use a camera and monitor to see the problem and offer advice in real time.
