CHICAGO – April 30, 2018 – MobileHelp® Healthcare, a leader in personal and enterprise healthcare technology solutions, announced today that its SVP, Chris A. Otto, and one of its key telehealth advisors, David Taylor, RN, are presenting at the 2018 American Telemedicine Association (ATA) annual conference and expo, April 29-May 1, at McCormick Place.
Mr. Otto and Mr. Taylor will participate in a special ePoster presentation portion of the conference, held in the Learning Zone portion of the show, in booth #2146. The Learning Zone is designed to provide attendees with best practice work, research and experiences involving clinical tele-specialty services.
Titled “Surveying the Industry: The Case for Telehealth, by Healthcare Professionals,” Mr. Otto and Mr. Taylor will present their ePoster (EP-130) on Monday, April 30 from 4:25-4:40 PM, to summarize a recent survey on the use of telehealth among healthcare organizations and professionals.
The poster presentation will examine the results of the survey, which demonstrate that while the benefits of using telehealth are very clear to those in the provider space, the capability to invest in a new program or expand an existing one has significant challenges – from fiscal difficulties to personnel shortages.
“This conference is aimed at bringing better healthcare to patients, improving outcomes and reducing costs by helping healthcare organizations as they implement new technology solutions,” said Mr. Otto. “Examining the results of this survey will afford the opportunity to understand how the known challenges around telehealth implementation can be addressed by products on the market today.”
“We feel confident that attendees at our presentation will walk away with a clear understanding of how to invest in a new telehealth program or expand on an existing one,” said Mr. Taylor.
