UPMC Teleconsult Centers
UPMC Teleconsult Centers are dedicated outpatient, multi-specialty clinics located in more rural areas throughout western Pennsylvania. At these centers, patients are given the ability to have appointments with one of UPMC’s world-class physicians via live, synchronous audio- and video-enabled, HIPAA-secure technology.
UPMC Teleconsult Centers are a new model of patient care and partnership, bringing the support and insights of specialty physicians to your practice or facility. When a specialist is not available, a telehealth consultation brings the expert to your community, saving your patient the time and inconvenience of travel. Our Teleconsult Centers are also a valuable way to offer your patients follow-up care after a procedure, eliminating the need from them to travel to Pittsburgh to see a specialist.
UPMC’s teleconsult services include more than 40 different subspecialty services across both pediatric and adult specialties. UPMC continues to expand these resources to give your patients greater access to clinical specialty services ranging from emergency care and maternal fetal medicine, to pediatrics, radiology and surgery, and more.
How a Telehealth Consultation Works
- Using HIPAA-secure video conferencing technology and dedicated onsite staff, UPMC Teleconsult Centers connect patients directly to specialists located in Pittsburgh.
- The patient and the specialist can see and hear each other during the consultation, and medical staff at your location can assist the specialist in performing an exam, using digital instruments, in real time with the specialist.
Patients must contact a physician’s office for information regarding available telemedicine services; self-referrals are not accepted.
