WEB_DESC:This panel will discuss telehealth technology, service, policy, and research trends in the U.S., E.U., and Asia. Telecommunication service platforms have drastically changed every aspect of our lives including health care. Telehealth is at a tipping point of becoming a standard means of health care delivery and provides the capability for improved outreach to underserved and vulnerable populations. Similar to the challenges faced by the telecommunication industry, the health care sector is facing changes in consumer expectations and need to innovatively transform traditional/legacy means of health care service delivery. This panel will discuss innovations and approaches in facilitating this transition.
