Telemedicine Startup Kickoff
We will discuss the plans for building this platform, the company formation, launch, and exit.
All those interested in being a founder/investor can make a commitment after the session.
Telehealth is exploding and we’re building a platform to take advantage of this “gold rush”
During COVID-19, hospitals and clinics are embracing new technology at warp-speed. In recent months, hospitals around the country, looking for ways to free up beds for coronavirus patients, began expanding their virtual offerings, launching video doctors’ visits and virtual therapy sessions, and rolling out programs to remotely monitor vulnerable patients, like those in nursing homes. As doctors and patients embraced these new, online methods of care, Medicare, Medicaid and many private insurers are changing their payment rules to accommodate them.
“COVID-19 changed everything when it comes to telemedicine services,” says Dr. Karen Rheuban, director of the University of Virginia Center for Telehealth. “The genie’s not going back in the bottle.”
Dr. Stephen Fitzmeyer will lead the webinar.
Dr. Fitzmeyer, a Physician Informaticist and expert in web development, is the founder of Jax Code Academy, MD Idea Lab, and Warp Core Health.
