Telemedicine


Welcome to EMMC’s Telemedicine Center, the first comprehensive telemedicine service offered by any hospital in Maine. Using innovative digital communication, the EMMC Telemedicine Center links doctors and specialists to patients in real time. Regartless of geographical distance, this program allows providers to review, consult, and see patients via high-definition video stream to determine the best course of care. 

EMMC offers immediate consultation services for an array of specialty needs, including critical care for:
  • Pediatric patients
  • Trauma patients 
  • Patients who are experiencing signs and symptoms of stroke 
  • Patients in need of medications
In some instances, this technology allows patients to remain in their local hospital, close to family and friends, while receiving care from EMMC’s highly skilled physicians. On other occasions, telemedicine allows specialists to confirm the need for patients to be transferred to EMMC for advanced care. 

Telemedicine is changing the way physicians care for their patients. EMMC is helping pave the way for the future of telemedicine in Maine and other rural states. The goal of the Telemedicine Center is to meet our patient’s critical care needs by fostering relationships with every hospital in our referral area. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
