In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, speakers at this year’s conference talked about challenges during COVID faced by hospitals, nursing facilities and the healthcare community at large. Organizations and speakers shared their telehealth expertise and massive expansion of telehealth utilization and impact. We also heard about the amazing work of regional and national colleagues of key note speakers such as Dr Veena Channamsetty, Dr, Michael Hasselberg, Dr Jospeh C. Kvedar, Dr Shantanu Nundy and Thomas Ferrante to name a few. We learnt about rapid implementation success stories and lessons learned, workforce training efforts, and strategic planning for tomorrow’s healthcare landscape, with telehealth and telemedicine services as a focal point.
At NETRC, Symbian Health had the opportunity to discuss our services and technology in this time of need particularly for underserved populations. Other organizations there in the field of telehealth such as All, AMD, Caregility, Irishealth and other presented how implementation of their platforms and programs at nationwide hospitals and healthcare facilities has greatly improved access in those areas. It was a great opportunity to connect with partners in Telemedicine, exchange meaningful ideas, meet with industry leaders and hear about experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic from an organization, provider and patient point of view.
