Beaumont Health launches telemedicine pilot

Beaumont Health, based in Troy, Mich., has rolled out the first of three pilot programs focused on virtual patient visits and electronic check-ins.

The initial telemedicine trial has been put in place at 10 of the health system's physician offices in Royal Oak, St. Clair Shores, Troy and other Michigan cities. Patients at these physician offices have the option to log into MyBeaumontChart for e-visit options.

"This really complements what we're already doing and provides the ability to see patients in a whole new way," said Trevor Ripley, MD, with Troy Family Medicine. "If you know a patient well and already have a relationship with them, this technology will make things easier as far as time is concerned."
