University of California doctors treat inmates through video program

Sacramento Bee, August 4, 2008
As part of his infectious diseases practice, University of California-Davis physician Javeed Siddiqui, MD, regularly sees Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation prisoners as patients but is never in the same room with them. Siddiqui is an example of the increasing role that telemedicine has been playing in inmate care in recent years. Doctors who treat inmates via telemedicine say it is a win-win because it's easier on them and the patient, more cost-efficient for the prison system, and provides a patient base for medical institutions.
