Clinical TeleHealth

SIU Medicine's TeleHealth program provides access to care for patients and health care providers who have limited or no access to primary or specialty care. Through virtual care strategies, you can bring our specialists and primary care providers right to your community with secure, HIPAA compliant clinical video and telecommunications technologies.

SIU HealthCare's Telehealth program provides access to care through virtual care strategies that bring our specialists and primary care providers to your location through video and telecommunications technologies. With more than 20 clinical specialties and subspecialties delivered via Telehealth, care close to home is now a reality for many patients and their families. Close collaboration with local primary care providers is enhanced when Telehealth is used.
