Telehealth

Technology is advancing faster than ever, and the same is true for health care. Areas such as telemedicine, telehealth, e-Health and mobile health (m-Health) are growing rapidly and serve as highly effective tools in health care delivery.

A collaborative effort between the Colleges of Nursing and College of Medicine, this post-baccalaureate certificate program immerses individuals in the extensive ways telehealth is used to deliver care and teaches the business and operational aspects needed to offer these services. This program welcomes a wide variety of individualsā€”nurses, physicians, residents, allied health professionals, information technology specialists and health care administrators. Course content offers a road map of implementation for both novice and experienced professionals.
