Correctional Facility Telemedicine

PrisonThe Center for Distance Health (CDH) has developed a correctional telehealth program that delivers prenatal care in Arkansas women’s prisons to provide both routine and high-risk care for inmates.

CDH provides comprehensive care to these at-risk women by using a combination of in-person visits, Level II ultrasound technology, and telemedicine consults that allow genetic counselors and maternal-fetal medicine specialists at UAMS to view and consult patients in real time.
