Aspirus uses telemedicine, or telehealth, to give patients access to specialty services that aren’t always found in rural areas. In the past, patients in need of these services would have to drive – often several hours – to access the care they needed.

With telemedicine, patients can stay close to home and access specialty services through high-definition video technology and a secure connection. You will be able to see and hear your doctor, but your doctor can do more than just see and hear you. Your doctor can assess your needs with the use of patient exam cameras, electronic stethoscopes, and other telemedicine equipment.

Telehealth services may vary by location, but Aspirus currently offers the following telemedicine services:

  • Cardiology
  • Psychiatry - adult and adolescent
  • Pulmonary - respiratory
  • Neurology - inpatient
