Telemedicine Center

State-of-the-Art Telemedicine Facilities

A new state-of-the-art Telemedicine Center opened in 2011 at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh’s main campus in Pittsburgh, Pa. This new facility allows for convenient and timely access to pediatric services.

The center includes two private suites and six workstations. To ensure optimal two-way communication, collaboration, and consultation, each suite is equipped with a: 

  • High-definition video camera
  • Monitor
  • Voice recorder for superior video and audio performance

The workstations also provide high-definition video and high-fidelity audio from a desktop computer.

All communications contain Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption so information is highly secure and compliant with all privacy regulations.
