Health Information Technology   Telehealth    Telehealth Symposiums

The MHCC held two telehealth symposiums to highlight the work of the telehealth grantees.  The symposium highlighted the work of the telehealth grants underway in Maryland.  The symposium also provided the opportunity for attendees to hear about leading challenges and solutions to telehealth adoption, and learn about the grantees’ experiences in implementing telehealth.  In addition, attendees were presented with preliminary findings on how telehealth is increasing access to health care, reducing health disparities, and creating efficiencies in health care delivery.

2016 Symposium

The second Telehealth Symposium: Remote Monitoring and Chronic Care Management of High Risk Patients took place on February 22, 2016 at the Anne Arundel Medical Center.  The event showcased the work of the Round 2 telehealth grantees.  The three grantees provided an overview of how they are using remote patient monitoring (RPM) devices to manage patients with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, chronic heart failure, hypertension, and asthma.  Other industry leaders also presented on issues impacting successful implementation of RPM telehealth projects in the State.
