Arlington -- Friday, State InsuranceCommissioner Oxendine cut the ribbon at Calhoun County Hospital in Arlington, making it the latest hospital to join the new Georgia Telemedicine Program.
Patients who used to drive across the state to get advanced medical care now can have the doctor come to them, through modern technology.
The new Georgia Telemedicine Program connects patients at small, rural hospitals to specialists at larger medical centers. Specialized medical cameras allow doctors from Piedmont, Emory, Savannah Memorial, and the Medical College of Georgia to examine, diagnose and treat patients across the state.
Digital technology transfers X-Rays and CT scans to radiology experts.
Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine says the program helps bring the finest health care to all patients. "The problem is that too often in Georgia the quality of healthcare you receive depends on where you happen to be when you need it and even though we've got some of the finest doctors possible in rural Georgia," Oxendine said. "We don't always have the specialists that we need."
Doctors at the hospital have already trained with specialists on using the technology.
