TeleHeart brings heart care to rural communities

  • After returning home from a trip, Howard Zins noticed that he was very short of breath and was having trouble moving around his property in New Ulm. MN. He visited his regular doctor, who after examining him, suggested he meet with a cardiology specialist from Minneapolis Heart Institute®. Instead of waiting weeks for an appointment or having to drive more than two hours each way to meet with the specialist in Minneapolis, he was able to connect with Marc Newell, MD, a general cardiologist, via TeleHeart. Learn more about TeleHeart technology and Zins’ story.
