Teladoc CMO Speaks at HIMSS 2017 on Driving Telemedicine Outcomes
Teladoc demonstrates new integrations and its highly-configurable licensable platform designed for health systems
ORLANDO, Florida (February 22, 2017) — Teladoc, Inc. (NYSE: TDOC), the undisputed leader in telehealth, providing access to care for millions, exhibited this week at the 2017 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition in Orlando. As part of the company's show participation, Henry DePhillips, MD, and chief medical officer for Teladoc, presented on the topic of "Engaging Consumers to Drive Telemedicine Outcomes." Teladoc is also demonstrating its dedicated, licensable telehealth software solution for health systems.
Driving Outcomes with Telemedicine Utilization
Dr. DePhillips spoke to a standing-room-only crowd in the innovation center on Monday, February 20, 2017, sharing advice on how to effectively use the right innovative technologies to fuel adoption. He also shared data on telemedicine usage and engagement strategies that set Teladoc apart with a utilization rate several times that of the industry average.
"Using the latest technology to create remote healthcare access improves outcomes and consumer health, but only if patients actually use it," explained Dr. DePhillips. "Patient engagement and behavior change are key in telemedicine, and Teladoc has designed our platform to drive maximum utilization while also providing a clinically advanced platform that meets the unique needs of health systems."
A Licensable Solution for Hospitals and Health Systems
This week during HIMSS Teladoc is demonstrating its telehealth technology platform and licensable software solution that has earned the exclusive endorsement of the American Hospital Association (AHA). The platform has a number of key differentiators from other telemedicine solutions available to this market, including:
– It is highly configurable. Configurable and reliable technology enables each health system to identify their needs, particularly when it comes to workflows and branding opportunities. And with a secure, cloud-based and HIPAA compliant architecture, system maintenance and updates are more easily managed, and scalability can be achieved with relative ease. This all helps translate to lower costs.
– It offers a flexible physician network strategy. Hospitals and health systems can staff fully with their own physicians, with Teladoc board-certified physicians, or use a combination of both to provide optimal coverage.
– It comes with complete operational and marketing support. Unmatched 24×7 support is provided, along with marketing expertise that will help increase patient engagement and drive utilization.
