 A world of access.

Innovation that heals…technology that teaches.

The Finger Lakes Telehealth Network is an innovative clinical tool for providers and patients. It also keeps your organization on the cutting edge of medicine and facilitates dialogue with multi-location medical facilities . A physician in New York State can attend an international conference in Zurich without leaving the country. Providers and staff can learn the latest medical techniques—right from their offices. Reviewing new research developments, case-conferencing, counseling, board training—the applications are virtually endless with our Telehealth Network. And, the cost savings to your organization are dramatic when you factor in the elimination of travel expenses and time savings.
