OSF St. Mary on verge of telemedicine

From the Register-Mail:

Patients at OSF St. Mary Medical Center will soon be able to take advantage of telemedicine, which allows them to video-conference with doctors at the Pediatric Resource Center in Peoria.

The Pediatric Resource Center provides medical evaluations for children suspected of abuse and neglect, and in 2015, Knox County had 33 cases. April is Child Abuse Awareness Month.

With telemedicine, which the PRC has used at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center in Bloomington and eventually plans to bring to Galesburg, the PRC hopes to treat patients better and more efficiently.
