Telemedicine project will serve rural Tennessee women
Expanding a medical video network in Tennessee will allow small-town doctors who treat pregnant women to consult electronically with obstetrics specialists in Knoxville and Chattanooga when there are serious problems. The telemedicine project will serve women at 11 rural sites: Winchester, Tullahoma, McMinnville, Cooke ville, Livingston, Crossville, Jellico, Morristown, Newport, Sevierville, and Athens. Perinatologists from Regional Obstetrical Consultants will link with the patients through high-speed, secure Internet connections, specialized computer video equipment, and digital medical devices.
