MATRC hosts an annual Regional Telehealth Summit. Registration for 2021 is now open! Visit the Summit Website for more information!
Launching Into Telehealth 2020 is a virtual conference that was co-hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Telehealth Resource Center (MATRC) and the Northeast Telehealth Resource Center (NETRC) as an alternative to having to cancel our annual in-person events due to COVID-19 considerations. While this Virtual Event was a series that took place over four days, we have reorganized all the materials and recordings in our Virtual Event Platform so they all show up on the Agenda as if it were all on the same day.
For previous year event content, select the year to read an overview of the theme. Click on the title bar for each year to be directed to the Summit mobile app page where you will find the full agenda, handouts, posters, presenter information, links to screencasts and videos for select sessions and more.
We are at a tipping point! The exponential growth of technological innovations and its confluence with recent policy shifts are paving the way for dramatic changes in how we deliver health care and influence health behaviors. We have already moved beyond traditional “telemedicine” solutions, to its integration with powerful sensors as part of the “Internet of Things”; its ability to incorporate predictive analytics and artificial intelligence; and soon its ability to leverage 5th Generation (5G) fixed wireless and mobile broadband networks. Where are we going with this digital connected care revolution? How might the convergence of these technologies impact the health of populations and begin to mitigate our greatest health challenges? And perhaps even more importantly, how do we begin to create viable models within our current work settings?
Departing from a more traditional plenary session format, the 2018 MATRC Telehealth Summit will draw you into lively discussion and challenge your current understanding of hot topics such as privacy, security, HIPAA, standards of care, quality of care, informed consent, and licensure as they relate to telehealth.
