Telemedicine cuts travel time for patients

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- Some patients in Vermont who would normally have to drive two hours for medical care can now see a doctor via telemedicine.

Several rheumatology patients at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington can use real-time video for their appointments with Dr. Daniel Albert at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire.

When patients are shown to an examination room, a staff member uses a special medical cart equipped with a camera and a video screen to connect to Albert.

Albert examines patients with the assistance of a nurse, who uses high-tech diagnostic devices to scan the patient. Albert is then able to review the video images live on his computer.

Albert also makes twice-monthly visits to SVMC to see patients in person.
