SPS 2016 Program - Page 4

Welcome On Behalf of the Conference Advisory Board, the Honorary Chairs, the Arizona Telemedicine Program, the Southwest Telehealth Resource Center, and the Four Corners Telehealth Consortium, we are delighted to welcome you to the second national Telemedicine and Telehealth Service Provider Showcase! SPS is the first national meeting focusing exclusively on building partnerships to bring high quality, telemedicine- and telehealth-enabled medical specialty services directly into hospitals, clinics, private practices, and patients’ homes. We have an exciting lineup of 29 speakers that includes nationally and internationally recognized experts on telemedicine; telemedicine providers and users; and authorities on legal, regulatory and policy aspects. The two-day showcase features a series of high-powered talks and panels on learning what it takes to succeed in this increasingly competitive market, finding the right partners, understanding telemedicine laws, regulations and policies, establishing successful working relationships, and integrating telehealth into different health-care enterprises. The Expo Hall has a wide array of tele-medical specialty services and supporting technologies that will provide a forum for seeing and discussing the latest trends in clinical telehealth. To help attendees navigate the floor and hear first-hand what these best-of-breed telehealth companies have to offer, our “Lightning Rounds” will highlight exhibitors who will briefly describe their services, markets and thoughts about the state of the market for telehealth service providers. Health care is changing and telemedicine is leading the way. Service providers offer a new and exciting model for improving the efficient and effective delivery of health care in innovative ways that will truly impact patient care. SPS 2016 offers attendees an entrée into this important and influential arena to help you stay competitive in this demanding and dynamic field. We wish to express our appreciation to those many individuals who have participated in the planning and implementation of the diverse components of SPS 2016. Their enthusiasm and dedication have been critical in making SPS 2016 a reality.
