Memorial Health University Physicians Announce Telehealth

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Friday, April 17th, 2020

In an effort to keep our patients safe, Memorial Health University Physicians (MHUP) practices are now offering telehealth. Patients can have a real-time visit with their provider by using their existing mobile device.

Depending on their needs, a provider will determine whether a patient can be seen virtually - either via a phone encounter or a full video interaction.

“This gives our patients the ability to see their doctors from the comfort of their own homes,” says Dr. Nicole Cohen, MHUP internal medicine physician. “This is an unprecedented time, and we’re doing all we can to make sure our patients are still able to connect with their trusted medical providers.”

Benefits of Telehealth Visits:

Excellent care delivered by physicians specially trained in telemedicine

Quick and appropriate response to patients in their homes, avoiding unnecessary travel

Uninterrupted treatment of chronic diseases

At this time, platforms included in the MHUP telehealth program include Apple FaceTime, Google Duo, and WebEx Meetings.
