HowDoesTelemedicineWork?
    • A clinical provider calls the Children's Telemedicine office at 404-785-1111 to obtain a telemedicine appointment for their patient.
    • The patient receives an appointment at a telemedicine location near them. An onsite healthcare provider facilitates the consultation with a Children's subspecialist.
    • At the conclusion of the telemedicine appointment, the Children's subspecialist completes consultation notes.
