When Patti Cox learned she had a brain aneurysm, she wanted to act quickly. Thanks to DHMC's virtual aneurysm clinic, she went from consult to procedure in six days and had a worry-free Thanksgiving.
Physicians, nurses and hospital administrators came from as far away as California for the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Center for Telehealth's second annual telehealth summit .
