by | Feb 23, 2017 | News

ORLANDO, FL – Terry Maytin, Medocity’s VP of Commercialization, presented at the 2017 HIMSS Annual Conference (HIMSS17) to a large audience of healthcare professionals and practitioners as part of the HIMSS-sponsored educational seminar series. His presentation, entitled “The Next Generation in Virtual Patient Care Management”, covered a broad range of innovative Population Care Management solutions and approaches currently available and in practice.

During his seminar, Maytin explored the various methodologies and virtual tools that are giving providers deeper insights “between office visits”, engaging patients and connected care teams, improving risk management through early detection and enabling proactive interventions through shared communications, virtual visits and seamless care coordination, thereby improving outcomes and lowering costs.

Regarding the well-attended session, Maytin commented, “This mirrors the huge spike in interest and activity we’ve been seeing over the past few months, and it bodes well not just for Medocity, but the telecare industry overall. I think it also reflects increasing awareness of the real impact virtual care can have on patient health and economics – especially during the time when patients are at their most vulnerable, when they’re outside the clinical setting or in the home.”
