Telemedicine diagnostics

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.
