[New Ulm Journal, Feb. 16, 2018] New Ulm Medical Center (NUMC) is expanding a convenient service for patients and providers.

The new program, telehealth virtual visits, is a way for patients to see their doctor online for certain kinds of visits.

“We started the telehealth virtual visits back in 2017 with a few providers to test out the equipment and the process,” Director of Clinic Operations Jeff Messenger said. “We are now expanding it up to 10 physicians who will be doing the telehealth virtual visits, and those can be done on any web-enabled device.”

The program has been met with positive reviews. Messenger expects it will continue to be a regular option for patients. Read the full story at www.nujournal.com.
