Telehealth Webinar to be Presented by CosmoCom

Healthcare providers looking for information about telehealth are invited to join CosmoCom, provider of unified patient-provider communications, when it hosts “New Horizons in Telehealth,” a complimentary webinar on Wednesday, June 3, 2009 from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM EDT.  The presentation will focus on exciting new applications that draw upon voice response and multi-channel, multi-tenant contact center technologies to improve the quality and availability of care while reducing its cost.  With the right tools, providers can now unify all facets of patient-provider communication and:

  • Resolve patient requests efficiently
  • Inform and activate patients
  • Enhance quality and availability
  • Improve patient experience and loyalty

“The Telehealth of today and tomorrow encompasses much more than video conferences with doctors, store-and-forward radiology, and home monitoring systems,” said Steve Kowarsky, EVP CosmoCom.  “In some Telehealth studies where patients used only a telephone, the results were better than those in studies that relied on remote devices.”

Kowarsky will be joined by Datamonitor healthcare technology analyst Christine Chang and University of Kentucky chief technology officer and associate vice president of information systems Doyle Friskney.

Healthcare providers can register for the free webinar at www.cosmocom.com/to/Telehealth0609-astat.
