A partnership was formed by the Verizon Foundation, the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Telehealth Program and the Children's Health Fund to reach underserved children in Miami. "This telemedicine system is much more than a video chat. It allows our health care providers to not only see and interact with patients via live video, but also to monitor vital signs; perform advanced screenings and tests; and observe their outcomes -- all in real time," said Daniel Armstrong, executive vice chair of the department of pediatrics at the University of Miami Miller School Of Medicine.
