Telemedicine

Phoenix Area has taken a leading role to implement and ensure a telecommunications infrastructure is available to support service units and facilities implementing Tele-Health modalities (Tele-Radiology, Tele-Dermatology, Tele-Psychiatry, etc.). Phoenix Area is actively collaborating with the Arizona Telemedicine Program (ATP), Navajo Area IHS, University of Nevada School of Medicine, University of Nevada- Las Vegas Information Systems Department and the Information Technology Support Center (ITSC/HQW) on network infrastructure upgrades, Tele-Health services/support and digital imaging archive solutions. Tele-Health applications provide for increased patient access and clinical staff resources not previously available due to the rural locations and limitations of IHS and tribal facilities.
