Well, today’s coffee will just be a demitasse. I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Bismarck, North Dakota. I was invited to speak to a select legislative committee on healthcare about telehealth.

Does Primary Care Have a Place in Telehealth?

June 3rd, 2015

Does Primary care have a place in telehealth, and if so, how can they establish that place? That’s a question we discussed recently at the Montana Primary Care Association’s Spring Symposium. I was fortunate to be invited to the meeting and asked to present on how telehealth can help Community Health Centers (CHC) expand the care they provide their patients. A few of the centers are using telehealth already, primarily in mental health care, but there’s much more that can be added to the menu.

What a busy month!

May 27th, 2015

This has been a big month for meetings. In the last four weeks, besides the Montana Primary Care Association meeting I wrote about earlier, I’ve attended the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health’s National Rural EMS Conference in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This is another new association for us and we’re excited to make this connection. Rural Health is a critical component of telehealth and we want to be sure we are as well-connected into that area as possible. I represented the national Coalition of Telehealth Resource Centers in the exhibit hall.
