On August 14, we had the privilege of hearing from Deb LaMarche, Associate Director of the Utah Telehealth Network and Dr. Terry Box, Associate Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Utah School of Medicine. Deb LaMarche and Dr. Terry Box discussed how Telehealth is improving patient care in Utah.
The Utah Telehealth Network (UTN) links patients to health care providers across our state, country and the world by using leading edge telecommunications technology. Telehealth provides rural patients and providers with access to services that are usually available only in more populated urban areas.
Dr. Terry Box is also a Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) investigator and a member of HCI's Gastrointestinal Cancer Program. Dr. Box's expertise is in diagnosing and treating diseases of the liver. He has specific expertise in hepatitis B and C, hepatocellular carcinoma, and liver transplantation.
