Telehealth in Delaware
A multidisciplinary conference exploring the uses and benefits of telehealth initiatives in Delaware and the region
Tuesday, October 20, 2015
8 a.m.-5:10 p.m.
University of Delaware, Clayton Hall
Telehealth initiatives hold exciting potential to address health care access issues in Delaware and the region, whether from shortfalls in critical health care specialties, or in underserved geographic locations. Telehealth also provides innovative ways to meet the demands of an aging population, reduce inappropriate use of emergency departments, prevent hospital readmissions, bring care to the most appropriate setting and more.
The Telehealth in Delaware conference will provide opportunities to learn about telehealth programs already operating in Delaware, as well as in other states, with the goal of sparking imagination and innovation in Delaware’s health care system in order to meet our current and future challenges.
