Research and Program Development

Research and Program Development

The University of Virginia Office of Telemedicine uses surveys and metrics as research tools to collect data from patients, practitioners and partner sites.  These data provide insight into the quality and satisfaction of telemedicine services at the University of Virginia.  This continual feedback encourages the Office of Telemedicine to evaluate their practices as they work progressively to maintain their high standards of service.

Additionally, the University of Virginia Office of Telemedicine has been used as a resource center to mentor fledgling telemedicine programs that are looking to develop and expand their networks and services.  If you would like more information about developing a telemedicine program at your institution, please contact the Office of Telemedicine at (434) 924-5470.
