What Is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is health care without walls. It connects patients and medical providers through live, web-based video visits. By eliminating the barrier of distance, telemedicine improves access to care. It saves time and reduces travel expenses, making health care more efficient. While it used to represent the future of medicine, telemedicine is here now – and it is available to you at Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center through AASM SleepTM.
