Telehealth at UC Davis Health began as a telefetal monitoring connection with a rural hospital in 1992 and evolved to become the Center for Health and Technology (CHT) in 2000. Since 1996, the center has provided more than 42,000 telemedicine consultations across 50 counties to over 200 sites.

Our Mission

Our team is dedicated to creating new models of care through technology-enabled clinical services, research, training and education. We house the Center for Virtual Care and the Office of Continuing Medical Education, so we're perfectly positioned to provide a variety of interprofessional learning opportunities.
