Specialist TeleMed’s TeleCardiology solution provides board-certified cardiologists for even the most complex cardiac patients.
Our specialists in Cardiology are available 24/7/365 with response times of five minutes or less for true emergencies, fifteen minutes for urgent conditions, and thirty minutes for non-urgent conditions and follow-up calls.
