Things are really cooking this time of year at NRTRC. We've had meetings, conventions and will even get a little vacation soon. But the big event on everyone's mind here is the upcoming Regional Telehealth Conference in Seattle.

A Different Use For A Telehealth Connection

September 03, 2014
I witnessed a different use for a telehealth connection a while back that I thought I'd share with you. As you might know, medical and nursing schools do a lot of training with simulators. The sims are very accurate mannequins that can mimic patient signs, symptoms, sounds and even the feel of a patient. They're very helpful for hands-on learning. I've recently seen two really cool demonstrations of using the sims with telehealth.

What a Week

August 27, 2014
It's been a hectic week. Patricia and I went to Boise last week to talk telehealth with a statewide group. We met some nice people and signed up a few new NRTRC members. It looks like Idaho is on a good path to expand telehealth in the state and we had a fine time meeting people and talking about the future.

Providing care for Veterans

August 13, 2014
Patricia and I spent yesterday with a group of people who are interested in providing care for Veterans. As a Vet, I'm interested in Veterans' care for selfish reasons, but as a telehealth facilitator, I am in a position to do something about it. That's cool. We spoke with representatives from the VA, of course, but also from other organizations that want to help a wide spectrum of people from homeless Vets to wounded Vets to Vets who are

Seeing Progress

August 11, 2014
It's nice to see progress and goals achieved by the people we help. I just received an invitation to the grand opening of a community health center. Why? Well, I believe it was because we helped the Oregon-based Center get up and running in their Telehealth service. I got an e-mail from the center's CEO about six months ago. Is it possible, he wondered, for a community health center to offer Telehealth services? Sure is, I responded, and sent him some information.

Planning a Telehealth Conference

August 06, 2014
Planning a Telehealth conference is always an interesting proposition. Identifying and securing keynote and plenary session speakers can sometimes be frustrating, sometimes easy as pie. This year we seem to be having pretty good luck, with a significant percentage of the speakers we've invited accepting.

My Visit with our Board members in Washington.

August 04, 2014
A while back I visited our Board members in Washington state. While there I was lucky to sit in on a physician consultation over the University of Washington’s Telehealth network. It was called Extension for Community Health Care Options (Project ECHO), and allowed primary care providers in rural areas to present cases in which their patients had Hepatitis C and needed specialty care.

Watching Telehealth Expand

July 30, 2014
I went down to St. George, Utah, last weekend. My purpose was simple and selfish. I wanted to go to an airshow that was featuring the Blue Angels. I’ve been a fan of the Navy’s flight demonstration squadron since I first saw them fly in 1969 and knew I could get into St. George without too much hassle. While hanging around in the crowd waiting for the show to start, I struck up a conversation with a couple sitting in front of me.

Telehealth's Classic Uses

July 23, 2014
We all know about Telehealth’s classic uses: store-and-forward, where images are taken and later sent to a provider for analysis (dermatology and wound care come to mind); and interactive encounters, where a caregiver talks directly with a patient on a real-time videoconference connection. But is there more? Or should I say,

Questions, Questions

July 16, 2014
Questions, questions, questions. We thrive on questions. Ask anything about Telehealth and we’ll do what we can to find you an answer. For instance in the last two days we’ve received a batch of interesting queries. We got a request for information about store-and-forward dermatology from a network member the other day.
