Good Samaritan Telemedicine Program

Telemedicine is the use of telecommunications to deliver healthcare in a different place than the provider.

The Mission of the Mid-Nebraska Telemedicine Network is to develop a flexible multi-use system that will improve access to quality care by providing consultation and treatment in both routine and emergency situations and increase educational opportunities for both providers and the community.

Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation has helped expand telemedicine services in Nebraska and Kansas by the receipt of a new Rural Telemedicine Grant. Its goal is to improve access to quality health services for rural residents and reduce isolation of rural practitioners.
