Telemedicine or telehealth technology is gaining popularity in the health care industry. There's rising demand among patients, with one recent consumer survey finding that 20 percent of consumers would switch health care providers if another provider offered telehealth visits. Because telemedicine can speed diagnoses and increase access to care, CMS and state Medicaid programs are looking to this delivery model to help address the shortage of primary care physicians in the U.S. However, few physicians know how to incorporate telemedicine into their delivery systems. 

At Connected Care: Telemedicine in Practice, you'll get real-world tips and guidance from colleagues who have already implemented successful telemedicine solutions into their practices. In addition to boosting patients' access to care, telemedicine can help increase your bottom line, whether you incorporate it into your current practice or add it as a moonlighting opportunity.
