Plans to expand maternal telehealth, aid more rural patients


Telehealth proved to be an effective tool during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially for maternal-fetal medicine—more than 50% of those patients utilized telehealth visits.

Under the guidance of a medical professional using innovative technology, maternal telehealth allows patients to stay home—even for ultrasounds, which traditionally required an in-person visit.

The physician would connect with the medical professional on the ground via a computer or tablet and guide them as they performed the ultrasound. These virtual exams aren’t just reserved for ultrasounds.
