Promoting Telemedicine in Florida

Tampa, FL, December 09, 2014 --( ABISA, LLC Chief Executive Officer Nick Hernandez is working with state legislators and other healthcare colleagues to increase access to healthcare by means of telemedicine throughout Florida.

In November, Hernandez met with Florida state representatives and others in Tallahassee over a two-day period. They discussed strategies to help generate consensus from the Florida government to develop policies and approve funding. “Legislators need to be involved to take it to the next level,” Hernandez said.

Telemedicine is an effective delivery system for providing quality care and produces better utilization of limited healthcare resources. Just this past week, Hernandez met with additional Florida state representatives as various healthcare institutions shared their experiences and progress with telehealth initiatives in Florida. “Under healthcare reform, we are expecting patients to be consumers,” Hernandez said. “To that end, telemedicine is a piece of the healthcare transformation. Telemedicine is not the future . . . it is here now.”
