Telehealth Failures and Secrets to Success Conference 2016

Over the course of three days, guests learned the secrets of telehealth implementation. Several speakers presented their own war stories and lessons learned. They networked and shared their insights. You can review a selection of those insights on VSee’s Facebook page or with the hashtag #TFSS on Twitter

The VSee team was there in full force to demonstrate Cloud Clinic, as well as how doctors use VSee’s technology to live-stream their peripheral medical devices. Laurence Girard, CEO of FruitStreet, also had a table where he showed off their health and wellness platform.

Paul Smolke, Senior Director of Productivity for Microsoft, wrote in to say “the format and content was incredible. Your company’s passion to leverage technology to improve the delivery of healthcare is refreshing and admirable.”

The event was a huge success! Everyone at VSee looks forward to organizing an even bigger one in 2017 and making this telehealth conference an annual tradition.

Telehealth & HIV Prevention: Catch Stephen Sullivan at TFSS

Catch Stephen Sullivan’s presentation on telehealth & HIV at the Telehealth Failures and Secrets of Success conference!

Project Nexus: Addressing Barriers to HIV Testing and Linkage to Care among Male Couples in the United States through Telemedicine by Stephen Sullivan MPH, University of Michigan Center for Sexuality and Health Disparities.

Don’t miss Stephen Sullivan, Project Manager at University of Michigan Center for Sexuality and Health Disparities, at the Telehealth Failures & Secrets To Success Conference, Dec. 2-4, 2016 in San Jose, CA. He will be presenting a talk on the “Telehealth Failures & Secrets of Success with application to Clinical Trials.”

The talk takes place December 3rd, 2016, 2:15- 2:45 p.m.

Stephen will join with nationally known healthcare innovators, telemedicine strategists, and technology experts from Microsoft, Intel, Dell, Qualcomm, Avizia, DaVita, US Oncology/McKesson, as they lead 30+ sessions to dig beneath the telemedicine hype. Speakers will be examining telehealth failures and revealing their insights into telemedicine implementation, profitability, and user adoption.

Telehealth and telemedicine have been touted as healthcare’s savior for years. Market analysis has predicted 158 million telemedicine video consults and a $34B telehealth market by 2020. But even the hugely successful American Well with 3000 to 4000 video downloads per day is not reaching the tens of millions of calls its customer volume can potentially reach. So why has telehealth failed to live up to its hype?

In his talk, Stephen will present a case study of an active clinical trial entitled Project Nexus that seeks to promote HIV prevention among male couples in the United States through the use of telemedicine. He will explain how leveraging currently available telehealth modalities alongside at-home HIV testing technology may help male couples at risk for HIV infection to overcome barriers to testing, counseling, and linkage to care. In doing so, he will describe the research design and application interface of the Project Nexus study.

With over 70% C-level attendees including Stanford Medicine, Texas Medical Center, UNC Health, GE, ViaSat, and Zipnosis, you don’t want to miss out on this executive education event.

The healthcare marketplace is often described as complex and fragmented.  It is not surprising that many health tech companies have found it frustrating to negotiate the healthcare industry.

In his talk, Dr. Tom will provide a broad view of the enterprise skills necessary for success. Many are familiar with the oft repeated phrase, “culture eats strategy”.  Dr. Tom will provide an informative, humorous view of the type of company culture new start-ups as well as long-term players in the health tech industry will need to adopt if they are to survive the long-cycle business development that characterizes the health care industry.

Get Full Medicare Reimbursement in the Skilled Nursing Facility

skilled nursing facility

Every skilled nursing facility must abide by rules set by Medicare, particularly when it comes to Potentially Avoidable Hospitalizations, or PAHs. In fact, Medicare will soon be changing its reimbursement policy so that if a patient is readmitted to a hospital after a short stay in skilled nursing, the facility is penalized with less reimbursement money through the Medicare program. These changes don’t go into effect until 2019, but skilled nursing facilities are already receiving feedback reports on their performance. More and more, the skilled nursing facility is discovering that telemedicine provides a viable solution for monitoring, assessing, evaluating, and diagnosing patients on site without transferring them out of the facility for care – thus avoiding getting dinged by Medicare in the process.Continue Reading…
