Amor Telehealth Center, Inc (ATC) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit charitable organization of volunteer healthcare professionals such as physicians, advance practice professionals, nurses, and hospital administrators that leverage two-way interactive telecommunication technology (telehealth) to provide evidence-based quality healthcare access to individuals in medically underserved urban and rural communities in Oklahoma.
ATC’s model is to identify receptive faith based organizations across the state that will allow ATC to place a computer system with speaker, microphone, camera, and 23-inch-high definition monitor.
A volunteer health professional and/or administrator will facilitate the telehealth encounter at the originating site (where the patient is located). At a scheduled appointment time, the physician, who will be located at a distant site, will be using a similar computer system communicate and remotely examine the patient. If the physician needs to touch the patient to help with diagnosis, the nurse at the originating site will act as the physician’s hands and describe to the physician what they find. The physician can then diagnose the problem, develop a treatment plan, prescribe medications for the patient’s medical condition.
