About OSU Telehealth
OSU Center for Health Sciences is an Oklahoma Health Care Authority certified telemedicine network. We use our network to help patients across Oklahoma connect with telemedicine physicians from their local communities. We also provide information and assistance to help get a site where patients can meet with physicians virtually to reduce the costs and frustrations inherent with traveling for physician visits.
What is Telehealth?
The State of Oklahoma statute defines TeleHealth as the practice of health care delivery, diagnosis, consultation, treatment, transfer of medical data or exchange of medical education information by means of an interactive audio, video and data communications.
Telehealth can encompass remote non-clinical services such as provider training, administrative meetings and continuing medical education in addition to clinical services.
