Following on from Sue Hansons opinion piece titled ‘Our New Challenge – Care at a Distance’ , InfoMedix is hosting an online discussion to continue the conversation with a panel of experts. This is the first in a series of ‘IMX Talks’ on virtual care.
Each panellist will provide their unique perspectives based on experience and knowledge of virtual care models. This will be an interactive and candid conversation around the intersection of technology and healthcare.
Indeed, each healthcare organisation has its own means of addressing decisions related to technology, but members of Multi-Disciplinary Teams (MDTs) play an impactful role in the careful consideration of using digital health technologies to create effective virtual care teams.
This discussion will be relevant to anyone empowered with improving patient experiences such as clinicians, directors of nursing, healthcare tech and more.
Join us to hear from:
– Dr Steve Hambleton, Director Digital Health CRC & GP | IPN Medical Centres
