What Is an Inpatient Medical Teleconsultation?

Medical teleconsultation enables medical teams in different centers (or different countries) to interact in real-time. With ample notice, we can set up direct video consultation with UCLA physicians who are working in the inpatient units at UCLA Ronald Reagan Hospital, one of the world's leading tertiary/quaternary centers.
