Division of Genetics and Metabolism
Telemedicine Program

Our division partners with the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Sacred Heart Hospital, Pensacola, to perform telemedicine evaluations of newborns and critically ill children.  Telemedicine consultation can avoid the need for transporting children to Shands Hospital in Gainesville for evaluation. 

We are also actively evaluating different telemedicine systems in order to improve quality and portability of this service.  Our goals are to enhance efficiency and to provide expanded consultations to other underserved areas in the state, especially to other hospitals in the Florida panhandle.
