Telemedicine Is Revolutionizing Prison Health Care
For inmates who have chronic conditions, getting regular access to a specialist can mean major improvements in their health. But the logistics of getting that access can be complicated. Telemedicine in prison significantly simplifies this care. Physicians who previously had to deal with long travel times and extensive security can now see their patients from their own office. And patients who’d been traveling offsite for care only need to leave the prison for appointments that require in-person care.
