  • Our anticipated outcome is to provide real time maternal-fetal consultations with using ultrasound and telehealth technology to improve care for high risk obstetrical patients in rural communities of West Virginia.
  • Other anticipated benefits would include
  • - Keeping the patient in her home community for specialty care
  • - Moving information not the patient
  • - Supporting the care of the primary care providers
  • - Keeping health care dollars at the local level for ancillary care
  • - (Laboratory testing, radiology and pharmacy needs)
