New grant will increase use of telemedicine for rural Virginians

Residents of Southside Virginia will now benefit from enhanced and more extensive telemedicine, increasing their access to specialty care not readily available close to home. A $270,000 grant will create the Southside Telehealth Training Academy and Resource Center (STAR) in Martinsville, the University of Virginia health system announced. It will be operated by New College Institute and the University of Virginia Center for Telehealth at UVA Health System. "Training healthcare workers to use telehealth and patient monitoring technologies will aid them in providing high-quality care and service to their patients," Karen Rheuban, director of the UVA Center for Telehealth, said last week in a statement.
