From robotic rounding by physicians to remote patient monitoring via sensor encapsulated medication, health care technology is constantly evolving.  This session will explore those specific innovative programs as well as techniques used to implement an agile virtual care and innovation network through sustainable technology, training and transformative telehealth education.  The development of innovative telehealth curriculum across interprofessional disciplines enables the advancement, adoption and integration of telehealth technologies across healthcare domains - from CIO to CME education. Over 13 semesters of data have generated best-practices on the provision of introductory, interprofessional education aimed at empowering a new generation of providers and professionals to deploy virtual care services to better meet the needs of patients and communities. Presenters will share with attendees the implementation process for these type education programs as well as live and interactive education platforms to boost technology adoption across disciplines.  The session will also share the nuts and bolts of implementing an expansive TeleSpecialty program -connecting remote hospitals across the state of Texas to TeleNICU, TeleER, TeleOrtho, TeleConsussion and Sports Medicine specialty services - utilizing health information exchange systems providing informed care to patients and providers.
