June 2018 Webinar
This webinar will feature disruptive telemedicine technologies and explore their potential to launch a virtual medical care delivery model that challenges the heart of our healthcare system—the patient-doctor relationship. These virtual care technologies are having significant influence on healthcare design because they demand very different kinds of facilities, and in some cases no facilities at all.
