In this episode we sit down with Jonathan Linkous, CEO of the buy modafinil online india (ATA) to look at the past, present and future of telemedicine, as well as the functions of this organization. The ATA is the leading international resource and advocate promoting the use of advanced remote medical technologies. The ATA has been working with technology companies, communications carriers, healthcare providers, payers, state legislatures, and government agencies since 1993 in an effort to better serve the patient by operationally advancing telemedicine presence and use both here in the U.S. and around the world.
For decades clinicians and technologists have been seeking solutions to extend healthcare services to rural and remote locations in order to provide care that patients would otherwise have to travel substantial distances to receive, or would not receive at all. Telemedicine, using video technology and all that it entails, is one such solution that is not only delivering healthcare over large distances, but is growing in utilization within patients’ own communities. Brad Spangler, telemedicine analyst, provides us with an introduction to telemedicine – its technologies, goals, challenges, successes, current and proposed uses, and advancements.
Over the last several years, the technology that IT departments have been responsible for has migrated from under finance and other support purposes into the clinical environment. Simultaneously, medical equipment has evolved to incorporate and leverage traditional IT technologies, forming a bridge over what has perhaps been a present and widening – yet unforeseen – service gap. In this episode, we discuss how these teams continue to meld to meet the needs of the clinicians and patients.
Complex organizations require complex systems to meet their business needs. Healthcare systems are among the most complex business organizations today, with thousands of “users,” hundreds of applications, and numerous business units, the demand for IT systems and support is extensive. Many healthcare IT departments are now utilizing the ITIL methodolgy as a framework for choosing, constructing and implementing highly reliable systems and process solutions for their organization. Wilbur McVay, DPSM, gives us an overview of this methodology and how it can be deployed to help an organization provide stable, functional, and cost effective IT services to hospitals.
