UVA to expand burgeoning telehealth program

University of Virginia just won a $1 million federal grant to create the Mid-Atlantic Telehealth Resource Center. The goal: To expand telehealth capabilities and expertise among rural and urban healthcare providers in the mid-Atlantic region, the university announced. UVA's telehealth system already serves 85 locations around Virginia, and supports tele-care from 40 subspecialties, so the new multi-state initiative could be a whopper! Announcement
