South Carolina is a leader in telemedicine, with a statewide approach that includes cooperation and resource sharing – even among competitive hospital systems. The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and its partners have developed numerous models for addressing essential public and population health initiatives. This webinar will examine two of these approaches.

The South Carolina Telehealth Alliance is an unprecedented collaboration of academic medical centers, community hospitals and providers, existing telemedicine systems, government leaders and other entities focused on providing South Carolina residents quality health care, while effectively managing the costs. The Alliance is dedicated to providing telehealth services that are collaborative, valuable, and cost effective – with an emphasis on delivering care to underserved and rural communities.

The Technology Applications Center for Healthful Lifestyles (TACHL) is dedicated to improving population health – promoting health, preventing disease, and managing healthcare — through technology. Since its inception, TACHL has collaborated with numerous clinicians, provided grants, developed various applications, and taken part in more than 500 research studies.
