About The Project
STORC brings the services of ROC to your community, often eliminating the need for travel or transport. Using telemedicine, the patient is able to interact face to face with clinical staff and doctors, just as if the patient was seen at the physician's office in Chattanooga, TN.
During the visit, an advanced practice care provider and certified sonographer are onsite with the patient, while a ROC physician consults via telemedicine technology. A Genetic Counselor and / or Diabetic Educator can also join the telemedicine consultation as needed.
What To Expect During a telemedicine session, a member of our advanced practice staff and a sonographer are on site with the patient. These staff members will handle all aspects of onsite care. During the visit, the patient will interact with other caregivers using teleconference equipment and digital medical services that allow for real time sharing of data and images.
Comprehensive Care Although not all services necessary for high risk pregnancy care are available via telemedicine, the staff of ROC will work with the referring physician and patient to insure that whenever possible, this convenient service is made available.
STORC services are supported in part by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee.
