Washington, DC, April 26, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Nick Hernandez, CEO at ABISA, delivered a presentation last week on the topic of telemedicine at the Joint National Conference on Hispanic Health. The conference, held in Washington, D.C., was co-hosted by the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) and the Hispanic Dental Association (HDA). Physicians, dentists, health care professionals, government and private sector partners from across the nation gathered to learn new strategies for effective health care and policies to improve the health of Hispanic populations.
One of the tenants of the Affordable Care Act was to provide access to care for all Americans. To that end, telemedicine is a piece of the healthcare transformation and the government is slowly helping with telehealth initiatives.
In the presentation delivered by Hernandez, he noted that while telemedicine is already available to patients nationwide, programs vary significantly in their objectives, scope, and complexity. “Not all telemedicine programs are designed the same or offer the same level of service. Additionally, telemedicine needs are different for solo and small group practices than for hospitals and healthcare systems.”
The CEO of a leading independent healthcare consultancy, Nick has helped clients throughout the United States and in multiple countries formulate strategic direction and advance healthcare business initiatives. The company’s client list includes physician groups, hospitals, healthcare IT organizations, venture capitalists, private equity investment groups, and strategy consulting companies.
