Telemedicine is a health care delivery model that applies high-speed telecommunications systems, computer technology and specialized medical cameras to examine, diagnose, treat and educate patients from a distance.  Through a telemedicine encounter, a patient in Northeastern Hiawassee, Georgia may seek medical treatment from one of Georgia's leading specialty hospitals without spending the time and money required to travel for an in-person appointment.
