New York/PRWeb/October 9, 2013 – Epstein Becker Green and EBG Advisors announce the second webinar in a three-part series focusing on emerging trends in population health. The webinar series offers participants informative and insightful guidance on how population health strategies are transforming the health care paradigm as the industry moves towards the management of integrated delivery systems such as accountable care organizations (ACOs).
Former U.S. health IT czar Robert M. Kolodner, MD, will share his insights during the webinar titled, “Assessing the New Mobile Environment—Slaying the Dinosaurs to Achieve Better Population Health.” Kolodner, vice president and chief medical officer for ViTel Net, will provide a candid overview and assessment of how public and private sector initiatives and the pervasive use of mobile technologies are making a difference in the emerging, virtual care and remote monitoring health care marketplace.
“With the hoopla regarding electronic health records, telemedicine platforms, and technology applications to promote affordable, high quality person-centered health and health care, a better understanding of the new mobile environment is now a necessity,” Kolodner says. “Leveraging mobile health IT can optimize population health management strategies and help achieve a healthier population.”
Kim Tyrell-Knott, a member of the firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, will moderate the webinar, which is scheduled for October 16, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. ET. To register, click here.
According to Mark Lutes, chair-elect of Epstein Becker Green’s board of directors and an EBG Advisors member, the webinar series “presents a unique opportunity for participants to hear from key thought leaders on how care delivery systems are assuming responsibility for the health of the U.S. populations.”
In addition to Kolodner’s presentation, one final webinar will round out the series:
