WELCOME TO UAB eMEDICINE
UAB eMedicine connects you and your family with UAB’s world-class care in new and convenient ways. We use telehealth technology to deliver quality care to you in your own community. This means fewer trips to the hospital or emergency room and better management of your overall health or chronic medical condition.
Telehealth is a term often used interchangeably with telemedicine. Telehealth is a broader term that includes health support services such as online health education, accessing your medical information through our patient portal website, and using mobile apps to help monitor your health. The use of telehealth is growing as hospitals and doctors strive to lower costs, expand access to care, and increase patient satisfaction. UAB eMedicine will continue to add telehealth services in the coming months and years.
