Community members will have an opportunity to learn about the benefits
of telehealth at a presentation at the Teton County Library on Tuesday,
September 24, 2019, 12 pm – 1 pm.
“Telehealth is the modern way for physicians and patients to communicate
through video conferencing consultations,” said presenter Dr. Lisa
Finkelstein, medical director of telehealth at St. John’s Medical
Center. “It's a valuable tool for those living in rural areas,
particularly in Wyoming. Telehealth allows access to specialty care providers
without having to travel long distances for an in-person visit.”
Dr. Finkelstein will be joined by Sandip Ray, MBA, the program manager
for St. John’s Telehealth & Innovative Services, to discuss
the ways quality medical care can be delivered to the patient via a smart
phone or computer.
In addition to the technologies involved, the presentation will cover services
available, security and privacy issues, payments from Medicare/Medicaid/third-party
insurance companies, the concept of origination sites, ease of use, the
current status of telehealth in Wyoming, and the array of future opportunities
for this service.
A question and answer session will follow.
