Cell phone and stethoscope
Mary AtkinsonAs true leaders in health care technology, Tucson Medical Center (TMC) is the FIRST Southern Arizona hospital to deliver virtual care. They have introduced a virtual app that makes it easier than ever before to connect to exceptional care with compassion. The TMC CareNow app lets patients visit a board-certified physician through a phone, laptop or computer, virtually any time of day from anywhere. So, imagine being able to speak to a physician, face-to-face, using the built-in computer on your smartphone or tablet.  The doctor can provide medical advice, recommend treatment and even prescribe medication.  This is another great example of TMC providing care whenever and wherever patients need it. They are meeting patients where they are helping us all to get quality treatment faster and without having to visit an emergency room. Join me to learn how it all works!  This show made possible due to the generous support of Tucson Medical Center.
