MHealth Device Implementation in an Academic Medical Hospital: Lessons Learned John Larsen, MBA, PMP University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics, Department of TeleHealth In the last year, the University of Utah spearheaded an initiative to identify, evaluate and deploy pilot MHealth programs to provide for remote patient care using technology. In our trials, we learned much about how to evaluate and deploy these devices and what is likely to be a barrier to success. We will share these principles with the results from our program.

DirectDerm: Full Service Specialty Care Stratus Ivy Lee, MD, David Wong MD, Marilyn Loy Background: Stratus has developed a powerful Telehealth Readmissions Program in an effort to eliminate inpatient readmissions and assist in delivering better outcomes. The program has adopted a strategy that works by getting to the real challenges once the patient leaves the hospital. It has a workflow that allows you to monitor a patient’s recovery over the 30-day requirement. It is designed for the patient to have access to the support team of the healthcare provider from the comfort of their own residence. It provides visual confirmation of medications, doses, patient visual behavior, and compliance along with allowing for patient Q&A within a secured video setting. This program has proven to reduce cost and avoid re-entry into the hospital, which in return has shown tremendous saving to the healthcare provider. DirectDerm, LLC Methods: The program includes video conferencing and a workflow program, allowing you to monitor patient recovery. Every call placed is encrypted automatically from end-to-end. Private HIPAA compliant calls can be made over public Wi-Fi and 4G connections, providing visual confirmation of medications, doses, patient visual behavior, and compliance, as well as an opportunity for patient Q&A within a secured video setting. The program provides direct access to SMS via mobile devices and appointment cards, with the ability to review discharge paperwork, medications, doses and Q&A as well as schedule follow up appointments for virtual consults. 37 | Page Background: The physician shortage and maldistribution limits patient access to specialty care. This is especially true in dermatology where both insured and uninsured patient experience multi-month waits that impact both morbidity and mortality from skin diseases. Store-and-forward teledermatology is an innovative, validated means to significantly improve patient access and, when integrated into healthcare systems, can provide high quality, cost-effective skin care. DirectDerm (DD) collaborated with the Health Plan of San Joaquin (HPSJ), a California Medicaid program, and integrated its store-andforward teledermatology platform to provide teleconsultations and teletriage in addition to staffing a procedure clinic for patients who required in-person dermatology care.
