Patient Communication and Telehealth Greenspace – Healthcare IT Today Podcast Episode 32

For the 32nd episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, we’re talking about Patient Communication and Telehealth Greenspace. Who would have known when we recorded this on March 2, 2020 that this topic would become so important thanks to COVID-19. Please take that into account when listening to this episode though. No doubt a lot has changed in the last 3 weeks since we recorded it. However, the fundamental needs of patient communication and telehealth are still the same.

Plus, along with some of the classic versions of telehealth, in this episode we also talk about things like virtual sitting and virtual language translation which are both facilitated nicely by telehealth. You’ll also enjoy a look at how we talked about these subjects before Coronavirus. No doubt we’ll do a follow up to this in a future episode to discuss how things have changed with patient communication and Telehealth.

Here’s a quick preview of the topics we discuss on this episode:

  • Patient Communications – What’s Happening? What Opportunities Exist?
  • Telehealth – What’s Happening? What Opportunities Exist?

Now, without further ado, we’re excited to share with you the next episode of the Healthcare IT Today podcast.
