Maternal-Fetal Telemedicine in Macon

If your pregnancy becomes what physicians call "high risk," whether due to your age, expecting multiples or a medical condition, getting specialized care is extremely important. Fortunately, our team at Piedmont Macon Medical Center can link you with the right physician, a perinatologist, via an electronic connection.

The service, called maternal-fetal telemedicine (MFT), uses technology to electronically exchange medical information and provide medical services. Our ultimate goal is to allow you to receive prenatal care close to home rather than being required to travel a distance. We provide communication between you and the specialist via secure, high-speed telecommunications. Parties see each other on a video monitor and can interact via a speaker.

An MFT consultation may include live ultrasound imaging performed by a certified ultrasonographer. The visit is also combined with the live video conference. You can see the ultrasound images and the provider as the consultation proceeds. This allows the specialist to point out what is being viewed and better understand what is happening with your baby.

To learn more about our maternal-fetal telemedicine program, call 800-301-6254.
