Telemedicine Is Now Medicine

Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer Daniel Barchi published an article on how telehealth can drive patient outcomes while making care significantly quicker and more convenient to access. Barchi observed that NewYork-Presbyterian is utilizing telehealth for a broad variety of services, writing, "the capabilities of providing healthcare at a distance is vast, and we are now capitalizing on these technologically advanced opportunities." He then discussed some of NewYork-Presbyterian's telehealth programs, including Telestroke, the Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit, Digital Emergency Express Care, and Virtual Visit.
