In February, St. Joseph Health System partnered with AT&T to offer Telehealth, a collaboration aimed at connecting patients and doctors through technology. With the Emerge.MD OnePlace program, medical professionals can deliver virtual care from any Internet device – whether it’s to a patient at home or a specialist at another facility.
“We are very excited to enter into this relationship with Emerge.MD, which will extend our ability to deliver high-quality health care to the communities we serve, with particular attention to addressing the needs of the underserved and vulnerable populations,” said Dr. Elliot Sternberg, executive vice president of wellness and health improvement at St. Joseph.
