Telemedicine

Telemedicine

Telemedicine makes it possible for patient clinic visits with several specialty physicians located elsewhere.

Telehealth is a means of providing communication for healthcare-related programs and education to various medical satellite facilities, like ours, that are connected on a bridge between Avera McKennan in Sioux Falls, SD, and/or Avera St. Luke’s in Aberdeen, SD.

The Faulkton Area Medical Center Foundation, along with grant monies from Avera, has provided funds for new, updated equipment, which includes a polycom, monitor, and modem to transfer information between facilities, an electronic stethoscope, electronic otoscope, and a camera. This equipment is state of the art and we have it all right here at FAMC!

Patient clinic visits via telemedicine with a specialty provider save time, the cost of traveling, and, most importantly, are much easier on the patient.

If you are interested in a telemedicine clinic visit, please talk to your healthcare provider.
