Videoconferencing technology provides health care providers, support staff and remote patients a way to collaborate across distances with greater efficiency and ultimately enable a sharper focus on patient care. Through telemedicine, Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital works with a variety of providers to deliver expert pediatric diagnostic services in a fast, convenient and affordable way without the need for patients to travel.
Our team can partner with you to provide the following telemedicine services:
- Pediatric Cardiology (Tele-Echo): This is a remote service that allows a hospital or clinic to send stored or live echocardiographic images to a pediatric cardiologist for diagnosis.
- Pediatric Neurology (Tele-EEG): The tele-electroencephalogram allows a hospital with EEG technicians to carry out an EEG study on a patient and have it interpreted remotely by a pediatric neurologist.
- Pediatric Ophthalmology (ROP Screenings): The Retinopathy of Prematurity screenings allow the neonatal intensive care unit to send images of premature infants’ retinas to ophthalmologists for interpretation and early identification of possible eye diseases.
- Pediatric Radiology and Imaging (Imaging Reads): This radiology service allows the department to read routine pediatric studies, MRIs and CT scans, including brain, heart, and fetal imaging.
We offer telemedicine expertise and can assist you in developing successful programs for your patients. Our expertise includes workflow mapping, telemedicine program evaluation and state-of-the-art technologies. Contact the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital operations team at 616.391.7848 to discuss.
