Telehealth and Telemedicine
DIDD has partnered with StationMD to bring Telehealth and Telemedicine Enabling Technology supports to Tennesseans with disabilities. The primary aim of this initiative is to provide better access to healthcare for persons with disabilities statewide.
StationMD is a telehealth medical service that offers immediate virtual access to board certified physicians specifically trained in the care of people with IDD. The service is available 24-hours a day/7-days a week to act as an additional resource to the individual’s medical care. Individuals, family members and support staff are encouraged to call for any medically related concerns or questions.
