Telehealth

A partnership between Taylorville Memorial Hospital and Southern Illinois University School of Medicine brings the latest in virtual health care to the residents of Taylorville and Christian County.

Telehealth appointments supplement traditional face-to-face visits with the convenience of virtual specialty care, so you can stay close to home.

This system uses advanced technology for you to interact with an SIU specialist through high-definition audio and video conferencing.  SIU Medicine has partnered with TMH to provide trained, on-site clinical teams to help patients during telehealth visits which ensures diagnostic and treatment accuracy. And, with access to your electronic health record, these specialists deliver safe, high-quality care.

Advantages of telehealth services include:

  • Improved access to care
  • Reduced time from referral to appointment
  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Lower out-of-pocket costs for patients.

What You Can Expect

A Telehealth visit is conducted just like an in person office visit.  Once you have checked in for your appointment at the Telehealth site, a trained Telepresenter will escort you to the dedicated Telehealth-enabled space.  Your trained clinical Telepresenter will prepare you for the appointment, take your vital signs and then link you virtually with your SIU specialist.  The Telepresenter is accustomed to handling various on-site services, should you need other diagnostic and/or treatment services.
