Telehealth Technology at TriStar Horizon
Telemedicine gives you access to top physicians without leaving Dickson. If your community doesn't have a specialist on call 24/7, you don't have to travel downtown to receive the highest quality care.
Within seconds of a request for a consultation, a physician can position the telemedicine robot at a patient's bedside and connect via the Internet to a TriStar physician specializing in stroke care, behavioral health or infectious disease. The robot provides two-way audio and video communication and many remote presence devices, such as an electronic stethoscope. The doctor can remotely examine a patient's ability to move and speak and even zoom in to allow a complete full exam.
