Chronic Disease Management
“I learned about the benefits of telehealth in monitoring patients with chronic diseases. In my session, we reviewed guidelines for chronic care management, discussed how remote patient monitoring brings value to rural hospitals, and the return on investment. The information I received will help me educate the population that I represent.”
“I attended the presentations on teleconcussion. I learned the importance of a systematic approach and the role telehealth can play in making a diagnosis. I also learned that cases will vary in urban and rural settings based on the resources available.”
