Telemedicine Telehealth Service Provider Showcase - Mark Your Calendars!!!

Are you thinking about getting into telemedicine either as a service provider or using a service provider but have no idea what’s available, how to find customers as a service provider, or as a user find a service provider? Wouldn’t it be great if there was somewhere you could go to find out what’s out there and ask all the questions you have?

Well wait no longer! The Arizona Telemedicine Program, the Southwest Telehealth Resource Center, and the Four Corners Telehealth Consortium are collaborating to bring you the first annual Telemedicine and Telehealth Service Provider Showcase (SPSTM).

The SPS will be held October 6-7 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Phoenix, AZ. The meeting is designed to foster partnerships that will bring quality telemedicine services to hospitals, clinics, private practices, homes and schools.

The meeting will showcase service providers covering a variety of clinical specialties to improve patient care and outcomes. By bringing healthcare and telehealth service providers together partnerships can be forged that will increase market shares for all parties. Recent changes in the healthcare system and the increasing body of evidence supporting the numerous benefits of telemedicine make this the ideal time to enter the market. Telemedicine is growing exponentially and this is your opportunity to ride the wave!

SPS will provide attendees with practical information for getting into telemedicine as well as the opportunity to explore what telehealth service vendors have to offer. The meeting will attract 400-500 critical stakeholders including governmental officials, policy makers, corporate executives, administrators, legal, regulatory and reimbursement managers, service providers, healthcare professionals, patient advocates, consumers, and equipment vendors.

The organizers of SPS are nationally and internationally renowned experts in telemedicine: Dale Alverson, MD University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center; Elizabeth Krupinski, PhD Director of the Southwest Telehealth Resource Center at the University of Arizona; Marta J. Petersen, MD, Vice-chair and Professor of Dermatology at the University of Utah; Jay H. Shore, MD, Associate Medical Director of the Colorado Physicians Health Program and Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Centers for the American Indian and Alaska Native Health, University of Colorado; and Ronald Weinstein, MD Director of the Arizona Telemedicine Program at the University of Arizona.

Get your walking shoes on and your questions ready! We hope to see YOU in September!!
