    I was a physician attendee at the telehealth event. It was an interesting and entertaining presentation. I was disappointed that the main focus of discussion seemed to be on using telehealth to expand the reach of healthcare silos and enhance metrics like patient satisfaction scores. I used to look forward to the day when practicing physicians would be paid to use telehealth to care for patients. Alas, the reality is that expanding the fee for service system by adding telehealth to the current "face time" based services is unlikely.

      Ned, I'd be interested in knowing about those products. However, I probably should have made it clearer that my original post when I said "practicing physicians", I meant "physicians in private practice". It may actually make sense for a Kaiser Permanente to use telehealth in primary care today because the payment model is different. Unfortunately, the payment model for the vast majority of private practitioners is "fee for service", and there are only payments for a very narrow range of telehealth services. Of the many billions of dollars spent by Medicare last year, only 12 million dollars went for telehealth services nationwide.

      Dennis, I agree that private practice physicians need a solution. Some of the big players have a plan (or are building one) for TeleHealth, but private practice is left out in the cold. Lets talk - you can reach me at [masked]

    Hello Dennis, Care.IT is a telemedicine marketplace and patient engagement platform. Fee for service. Product is in soft launch right now with national rollout beginning later this year. By-the-way, we're actively looking for a Chief Medical Officer.

    Well done

    I am surprised that providers are not utilizing telehealth via home health partners. It would help solve issues with access, education, and could be targeted for those most likely to be readmitted (reduce penalties). Patients and families would benefit from the ease of follow up and it could be coordinated with a low cost field staff who help with the technology and data collection. Eventually follow for chronic conditions would be done independently.

    Attended for the first time. It was good to see a wide representations of folks from various aspect of healthcare.

    There is a need for relatively simple medical mobile applications that can help answer simple medical questions by querying a patient population about their experience after an intervention as well as monitoring the effectiveness and ROI of new medical programs adopted by a hospital system. I am interested in talking with anyone with an interest in this area of software development.

    Saman, reach out to me - i used to sell medical devices and have a couple of ideas for you. [masked]

    I am a physician looking for new medical devices that can be used in a primary care setting. I plan to start a direct payment concierge clinic outside of the US so most regulatory and reimbursement related issues are of minimal concern. I would like to beta test and/or buy any medical equipment used in a primary care setting including: vitals monitoring (e.g. ioximeter), equipment for physical exams (e.g. CellScope Oto), blood diagnostic equipment, and heart and lung measuring equipment (e.g. ECG, spirometry).

    Dr. Fonger,
    at ATA2014 earlier this year I met with a couple of companies which may meet (or at least partially) some of your requirements. Look forward to discussing at the MeetUp.
