How To Be Successful In The Telehealth Industry: Tips From Telehealth Pros
The new trend of digital health is changing healthcare as we speak. From Telemedicine to Mobile Health, hospital and physician access is becoming rapidly accessible for patients all over, especially those in rural areas. At the recent American Telemedicine Association conference, Sarah Sossong offered five tips to have a successful Telehealth program:
1. Focus, but stay nimble.
2. Don’t reinvent the wheel: “If an mHealth or telemedicine project changes what’s already working, don’t bother. Create toolkits that can be used in multiple projects across multiple departments, to streamline the process.”
3. Align financial incentives.
4. Make the technology disappear. “Telehealth, telemedicine, mHealth and all the other terms being used these days don’t refer to the technology – they refer to the connections created between doctors, consumers and other members of the health team.” Strengthen the connection between doctors and their patients, and make that the technology that needs to be recognized.
5. Expect failures and challenges and several iterations, and learn from them.
