URMC / UR Health Connections / Mission Statement Mission Statement Telemedicine initiatives at the University balance the threefold objectives of clinical care, distance learning and innovation to better connect University experts with the population they serve through virtual interactive and patient-centered paradigms, a key tool in population health management. Telemedicine receives diverse divisional support in each of its missions through the: Center for Experiential Learning, University of Rochester Faculty Medical Group, Medical Library, Office of Counsel, Planning and Marketing, Contracts, Informatics, and Information systems. Representatives from each major clinical entity within URMC support this mission and include members from Strong and Highland Hospitals, School of Medicine and Dentistry and the School of Nursing. Representatives from Regional Development, Planning and Marketing, Telemedicine, Office of Counsel, and Contracts will assist chairs of departments within the University in establishing new telemedicine relationships.
