Recent years have seen significant growth in the use of telehealth, to the point where more than half of U.S. hospitals connect with patients and consulting practitioners through the use of video and other technology. Emerging technologies and innovations are continually opening up new opportunities. Whether you are just beginning to implement telehealth or are looking for growth strategies, the Kansas Telehealth Summit provides valuable information for your journey. Speakers will share their healthcare technology success stories and best practices based on real-life experiences and programs in a variety of healthcare settings.
