Every year the CHIME and the HIMSS together choose a CIO of the year. Healthcare IT News interviews them and ask what they envision for healthcare IT 10 years ahead.
James Turnbell, University of Utah Health Care and CIO of the year 2012, envisions an explosion of telemedicine. He says: “Not traditional telemedicine where we think of a doctor or a patient doing a consult with a doctor in a remote location, but telemedicine with the patient themselves within their home settings. And, that’s so inexpensive. It’s very inexpensive on the technology side. You really need to change your care delivery model and resources that you have here at the hospital that are supporting that delivery system.”
Vitaphone definitely agrees with this, and we not only think this will be possible in the future; it is already available. Our solutions empowers clients in their home setting. For example: our Tele-ECG-card. With this card a client can make an ECG recording whenever they want. And it’s not bigger than a credit card. The ECG is sent to the consulting cardiologist by telephone; quick and easy. Vitaphone will introduce more developments like this.
