For decades, telemedicine has been a hoped for solution to help make healthcare delivery more efficient and cost-effective. In the above interview, Innovative Systems’ CEO, Roger Musick, talks about his experience as a board member of a local hospital that embarked on what became a statewide and, eventually, a multi-state tele-health effort several years ago and has resulted in multiple benefits including:
- Apps that allow low-cost, virtual doctor visits
- a pool of physician specialists who are able to instantly assist local doctors
- easier to attract and retain doctors in rural communities,
The SDN Communications network became the broadband thread that tied together the rural communities served by Avery Health. In the above interview, Musick discusses how the initial grant was turned into a self-sustaining operation within five years.
He will be providing more detail at next week’s IP Vision Conference and Expo.
