Cardiac Telemedicine

The expertise of our pediatric cardiologists is now available to patients and healthcare providers through telemedicine. An easy-to-use service, telemedicine offers patients and their primary care providers remote consultations and evaluations using live video. 

The telemedicine program:

  • Uses a high-speed telecommunications system, advanced technology and specialized medical cameras to connect patients and their caregivers to specialists.
  • Can improve diagnosis and treatment times with quicker access to specialists.
  • Helps families avoid long and costly commutes to Atlanta for specialist visits.
