Welcome to the TechSource podcast series. Today we are speaking with Dan Klanderman, Senior Solution Architect for the Collaboration Practice at Iron Bow, who will discuss key telehealth and collaboration trends.
On this week's program, hosts Doug Field and Brent Macy will welcome two special guests onto the program: Margie Rodino, vice president of global human resources, Sloan Valve Company, and Lena Cheng, MD, vice president of medical affairs, Doctor on Demand. Following the introductory segment wherein the hosts discuss this week in health care consumerism, Margie will join the program to discuss why employers that want to positively impact their employees well-being take it a step further by providing ongoing education regarding wellness and health care. For the second segment at 11:30 a.m. (ET), the hosts will welcome Lena Cheng to the show. In this segment, you’ll hear why employers should expect more from telemedicine, including better patient experiences, higher utilization, new fee structures, health insurance integration, higher regulatory/compliance standards, and greater clinical quality.
Vince Balsamo of Emerge.MD drops by the studio to discuss the rise of telehealth, the ways it can benefit both patients and healthcare providers and the shifting healthcare landscape in the United States today. Vince will also discuss the upcoming ATA Conference and the topics he expects attendees to focus on during the event.
This month on TechSource and High Tech Highway, we are delving into telehealth and specifically how technologies are enabling the distribution of more effective healthcare solutions regardless of geographic boundaries.
This is of particular importance when considering military health services that are trying to reach personnel and vets across the globe. Commercial healthcare providers are following a similar path to provide better care for patients.
Today we are talking with Josh Finke, Managing Director of Iron Bow Consulting and Ryan Sobel, Director of Enterprise Mobility at Iron Bow Consulting, about these issues and the role technology plays in delivering care.
The use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, health related education and health administration is no longer a foreign idea. New technologies such as video conferencing, the internet, streaming media and other wireless communications are making it possible to check symptoms and measure vital signs in the home.
In the future there will likely be more laptop based and tablet based devices used in the home. David Lindeman, Ph.D, Director at the Universitry of Berkeley, Center for Information and Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) joins us for an insightful discussion on this topic.
Technology is changing the aging landscape by providing "reinforcements" for aging in place. My guest William Miska is the founder of Telehealth, which provides 24/7 "vital healthcare and safety monitoring" products and solutions for seniors. We are going to be discussing the benefits and limitations of these new technologies, the scope of services, and what's on the horizon. This program will be of special interest to Boomers in terms of their aging parents but more importantly in terms of their own aging in place strategy.

Are these services an unecessary administrative burden without proven worth or do they insure quality care and better outcomes? Listen and learn as we talk with guest Clint Phillips, CEO and founder of 2nd.MD.
