Now, more than ever, telemedicine is at the forefront of the evolving healthcare environment. With parity laws being rapidly proposed and passed, and the AMA acknowledging telehealth’s pervasive presence in medicine through new CPT coding, there’s no better time for telemedicine exploration.
Telemedicine is vital to our health care system, enabling health care providers to connect with patients and consulting practitioners in ways never thought possible. Hospitals are embracing the use of telehealth technologies because they offer benefits such as virtual consultations with distant specialists, the ability to perform high-tech monitoring without requiring patients to leave their homes, and less expensive and more convenient care options for patients.
Telehealth has now moved into the mainstream. What was once an optimistic ideal for the future of medicine is now a reality being rapidly adopted. Whether it’s a regional telehealth network with hundreds of constituents, or a smartphone application to relieve pressure on overcrowded emergency departments, distinguished health systems nationwide are implementing cutting-edge tele-techniques to better serve their patients and staff.
This two-day, case-study-based industry event will focus on implementing, advancing, and expanding telemedicine services to increase patient engagement, advance care coordination, reach underserved populations, achieve efficiency and improve patient outcomes. The goal of this event is to bring industry leaders together, highlight the best practice achievements, and discuss the current issues and challenges facing telemedicine and its proponents.
