Center for Telehealth Leadership
The Center for Telehealth brings together resources from across MUSC to help provide a greater range of services to patients and health care providers. The Center was established to directly support and coordinate the operations of MUSC telehealth programs, facilitate the growth and development of programs that align with the MUSC Strategic Plan and address the needs of the South Carolina community.
Faculty and staff members in the Center for Telehealth can provide technical, clinical and educational expertise to support new partnerships and services. The Center actively collaborates with other state and national organizations to help ensure the successful implementation of telehealth initiatives. How can we partner with you?
