The Future of Healthcare Delivery: Telemedicine 

With an ever-evolving patient-clinician relationship in the current healthcare environment, it is important to take a step back and look at new opportunities to provide clinical support. The future of healthcare delivery truly is changing and telemedicine will be at the forefront of this movement. This recorded presentation introduces the fundamentals of telemedicine focusing on the different modalities and delivery mechanisms available, and dives deeper into the challenges and benefits associated with overcoming geographical barriers using this virtual platform. There is an emphasis on increased access and decreased travel and stress for patients providing inherent flexibility while allowing providers to meet patient demand easier.

We look at the use of telemedicine with tools such as wearable devices and mobile health apps that make it possible to transmit patient data to a physician, and connect with patients in ways that were previously impossible. We provide insight into strategies on how to integrate telemedicine into your practice by gaining physician buy-in and highlighting the ability to reduce or contain costs. We also briefly touch on the latest legislation governing telemedicine across the country by state and across state lines even taking a look at telemedicine coverage for patients. A high level focus on coverage will lead into the increased access to patient populations that telemedicine is providing especially true in rural areas and how this increased access plays a vital role in chronic disease management and preventative care.
