Telehealth is the use of electronic communication to provide healthcare information and services remotely.
At Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, we use telehealth to:
- Provide patients with better access to care
- Enhance communication between Cheyenne Regional patients and their providers
- Offer more flexibility in how patients receive care
While telehealth is not meant to replace traditional clinical care, it can offer an affordable, efficient and effective way to expand and enhance that care.
Cheyenne Regional’s Telehealth service has a solid track record of supporting the delivery of the following clinical services:
In addition, Cheyenne Regional is working to become a telemedicine hub that would offer medical specialty visits to other Wyoming hospitals. We’re excited to begin this new work as part of our focus on inspiring great health for our community, region and state!
Telehealth for specialty care
Being a frontier state, Wyoming is particularly suited to using telehealth as a means of providing and receiving medical care. It allows patients to receive care without having to drive long distances or in hazardous weather conditions.
Via telehealth, patients from our community and region can access the following kinds of specialty care, close to home:
Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes
The Cheyenne Children’s Clinic serves as the host site for Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes visits with specialists from the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes. These telehealth visits provide state-of-the-art care and teaching methods to prevent or delay complications.
HIV (Children & Adolescents)
The Cheyenne Children’s Clinic hosts quarterly Children’s Hospital Colorado Immunodeficiency Program clinics for children and adolescents affected by HIV.
Soon, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center will offer Tele-NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) consultations from Children’s Hospital Colorado.
