Session 24 | Connected Health Care: More Than a Concept for Assisted Living Facilities

Session Summary

Telemedicine technology must be designed to address the specific challenges of assisted living facilities. By using all of telemedicine's capabilities, we cannot only meet with the resident, but also provide medical specialties, as required, which results in better care for the resident. Telemedicine can integrate solutions already in place by merging the residents' immediate needs with their medical history, for that information to be shared with emergency responders, primary care physicians and current specialists.
