As the landscape of health care changes and becomes more diverse, the needs of patients and providers are also changing. Penn Medicine’s Connected Care telemedicine programs are using the latest advances in technology to help patients and providers access Penn Medicine specialty care without having to travel to Philadelphia.

What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine programs use telehealth technology such as electronic medical devices, teleconference technology and connected biomedical devices to monitor a person's health outside of the hospital or doctor's office. Telemedicine programs transform and engage patients by allowing them to share in the decision-making process, actively engage with their care team, monitor their conditions and help manage chronic diseases.
