How can MUSC help me better care for my patients? MUSC recognizes that providers depend on the specialty services provided within our walls to address chronic and acute medical issues. Telehealth programs at MUSC specifically extend the services provided by healthcare providers across South Carolina through technologies that bring MUSC healthcare providers into regional hospitals and local physician offices. The goal is to increase access to services within communities and strengthen the ability of providers to serve their patients. Whether you are looking for partnership in clinical, educational or research services, MUSC has a telehealth program for you.
