Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Palazzo E

Description

In August 2014, the UMMC Center for Telehealth launched The Mississippi Diabetes Telehealth Network to pilot an advanced healthcare model on patients with uncontrolled diabetes living in the Mississippi Delta. Based on the findings of the Mississippi Diabetes Telehealth Network, UMMC has ramped up this program to include monitoring for patients across other chronic conditions, with reimbursement.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Evaluate chronic disease management programs using technology in patients home to achieve significant cost savings and reduce readmissions
  • Recognize the need for a collaborative approach to managing chronic disease
  • Identify potential barriers to conducting research involving technology as a mode of healthcare delivery
