Salina Regional Health Center/Veridian Behavioral Health offers telemedicine services allowing patients to receive care in their home town hospital. Telemedicine gives the ability to conduct a physician-patient consultation by way of video communication. The emergence of telemedicine has provided access to specialty care for patients in rural areas including our north central region of Kanas. These telemedicine encounters occur in real time allowing both provider and patient to participate in a video visit that is just as private as an in-person visit.
