SnapMD has announced a partnership with the National Center for Telehealth at the University of Mississippi Medical Center for use of the company’s proprietary software.

The Glendale-based technology firm said Wednesday that its virtual care management platform would be used to power the center’s remote patient care operations systemwide. The medical center’s telehealth program, which connects patients with physicians in 35 specialties and facilitates urgent care through the emergency rooms of more than a dozen rural hospitals, was designated last fall as one of two “Telehealth Centers of Excellence” in the country by the Federal Health Resources and Services Administration.

“SnapMD is honored to partner with UMMC’s Center for Telehealth,” SnapMD Chief Executive Dave Skibinski said in a statement. “It is organizations like UMMC that can leverage our (product) to its fullest potential.”
