In this 40-minute Sirius Healthcare2Healthcare webcast the director of enterprise architecture for Intermountain Healthcare describes the hospital system’s TeleHealth program and provides key takeaways and insights on the future of the program.
Simply put, telehealth is the remote delivery of healthcare and health education services to patients leveraging communications technology.
Intermountain Healthcare, the largest healthcare provider in the Intermountain West with 37,000 employees, is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, and provides hospital, medical services and integrated managed care.
This webcast is part of the Sirius’ ongoing 2016 Healthcare2Healthcare Live Webcast Series, which is intended to provide IT leaders in healthcare with opportunities to interact with and learn from their peers.
Featured speaker Lonnie Buchanan, Director of Enterprise Information Systems architecture for Intermountain Healthcare, provides a detailed view of Intermountain’s TeleHealth program, and urges others to be prepared for changes on the horizon. Buchanan reasons that we are moving away from the “Internet of Things” (IoT) to what he calls “the Internet of Augmentation.” Where we once leveraged the Internet for information, Buchanan says, we are now more networked and likewise “augmenting ourselves.” Buchanan urges other to be prepared for telehealth as “everyone will be touched by telehealth in one way or another because your patients are being touched by it.”
