Current Healthline Topic:

Advancements in Telemedicine

What exactly is telemedicine – most people think it’s just talking to your doctor virtually, such as over Skype, FaceTime or Email – but it is so much more than that! Telemedicine is being used to connect patients to their doctors and other healthcare providers simply, safely and most importantly securely. Join us as we learn from Rebecca Schmidt, DO, FACP, Professor and Chief of the Division of Nephrology at the West Virginia School of Medicine on how telemedicine is being used to revolutionize patient care.

This educational webinar is proudly supported by an educational donation by Baxter.

Date: Wednesday, July 19, 2017  Time: 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EDT
