Abstract

This work describes the establishment of a Telemedicine Urology Clinic at the VA Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska to serve an underserved veteran population in rural Nebraska. Results from patient satisfaction surveys show that both the patient and the healthcare provider benefit from the telemedicine encounter for both the preoperative and the postoperative setting.
