Telehealth is all about connections

July 29, 2015
Telehealth is all about connections, that’s clear. Telehealth provides a connection between the patient and a provider who are located in different areas, and that’s the primary use. But the connectivity can also reach beyond patient and provider to the patient’s family if they are in a distant location. Or sometimes telehealth can help ease concerns of family members of very ill patients who need specialty care.

July 22, 2015

Well, I dug in and started doing some research trying to become a healthcare clairvoyant. As I did the research, I found that there was more than one potential path telehealth could take. While I think the discipline will grow and be used more and more as time goes on, It wasn’t absolutely certain where telehealth is headed, especially in light of the fact that while the research and paper preparation were underway, we were waiting for the Supreme Court to hand down a decision on the exchanges and supplementary funding.
