Library presentation to feature telehealth

Library presentation to feature telehealth

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.
