Developing Telemedicine Partnerships for Rural Healthcare
Archived Webinar February 2018
Rural citizens are some of the most affected by the shortages of providers, especially when it comes to specialty and follow-up care. Even the most amazing and well-intentioned physicians cannot be adept in all specialized areas of medicine practiced today. Referrals for specialty care, means the patient has to endure the cost of travel and time away from school/work to attend appointments in metro areas.
Telemedicine helps fill current gaps and challenges facing rural healthcare providers by bringing specialty care DIRECTLY to the patient.
This webinar, featuring Morgan Waller at Children's Mercy Kansas City teaches you how rural healthcare providers can partner with larger centers of excellence to deliver specialty care through telemedicine. To help move you forward with putting together your telemedicine plan, Ron Emerson from AMD Global Telemedicine reviews the key factors that need to be addressed when putting your strategic plan together.
- How to fill gaps in your healthcare services, with highly specialized clinical telemedicine.
- How to partner with academic medical centers to leverage their services and extend your ability to treat more patients.

- Effectiveness practice models and workflows.
- Telemedicine business models that make the most sense for rural healthcare providers.
