Each year, new telehealth industry trends emerge. While the Telemedicine industry is dynamic and growing, it is also complex. The markers for telehealth success vary depending on the intended use. Healthcare professionals have different questions and concerns based upon their roles. Both internal and external factors create challenges, and facilitating positive ‘first impressions’ often proves critical for longterm success.

Still, there are proven approaches that can be incorporated into strategic planning for telehealth programs. Join us for this presentation with Tracy Walsh, Senior Consultant for The Advisory Board. Tracy has prepared a comprehensive overview of the key telehealth industry trends in 2017 – and strategic considerations for your organization.
