Teleburn – Telemedicine Technology

TeleBurn is a service provided by Lehigh Valley Health Network that allows the UPMC Pinnacle Hanover emergency department physician to work with the Lehigh Valley Regional Burn Center specialists 24/7.

Using a digital camera, a computer and web-based software, the ED staff can send images of the burn injuries to the Lehigh Valley Hospital burn physicians for review and assessment. There, the specialists will view the images and discuss the case with the Hanover ED physician over the phone, expediting the delivery of specialty care, using predefined protocols.

TeleBurn allows our patients to receive the highest quality care locally, and helps caregivers at the Lehigh Valley Regional Burn Center, located in Allentown, PA to prepare for their arrival, should transfer be needed.
