MUSC Health Center for Telehealth

Welcome to the MUSC Center for Telehealth. The Center is one of only two National Telehealth Centers of Excellence in the country. The Center is also the headquarters of the South Carolina Telehealth Alliance (SCTA).

Using the latest in telehealth technologies, MUSC Health is connecting patients and providers across South Carolina with our expert health care team. MUSC Health is focused on expanding access to services, coordinating care, and improving the health of communities. Whether you are a patient needing the care of a MUSC Health specialist through the convenience and comfort of your local doctor’s office, or a provider interested in partnering to offer expanded services to your patients, MUSC Health has a telehealth program for you. Learn more about the many ways MUSC Health is changing what’s possible through telehealth.

National Telehealth Center of Excellence

The Center for Telehealth received a National Telehealth Center of Excellence (COE) grant award and designation. It is the first of its kind and was also given to the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) Telehealth. The award is a $600,000 grant in the first year, and two million for two additional years.

The COE application was developed by a multi-disciplinary, 16-member team consisting of key personnel from three of MUSC’s five university colleges and its clinical health system showing MUSC’s compelling track record in telehealth program development and leadership throughout South Carolina.

As a Center of Excellence (COE), MUSC will fill important gaps in the national telehealth landscape through a combination of ongoing regional and national collaborations, as well as proactive dissemination of telehealth resources. MUSC’s COE will also apply rigorous scientific evaluation to COE objectives and advance knowledge regarding how to achieve ‘next level’ telehealth. The three topics and related objectives MUSC will address during the COE project period include:

  • The impact of telehealth on federal and local health care spending.
  • Provider and patient engagement in telehealth.
  • Open access network evaluation and best practice dissemination.

Headquarters of the South Carolina Telehealth Alliance

The South Carolina Telehealth Alliance is an unprecedented collaboration of many health systems and providers across the state working together to ensure no South Carolinian is without access to quality health care due to where they live. Some of the partners within the alliance include Greenville Health System, Palmetto Health, McLeod Health, the SC Department of Mental Health, Area Health Education Consortium (AHEC), Palmetto Care Connections, and Educational Television (ETV).
