October 7: WHN Briefing on Telemedicine

Hospitals and health systems are turning to telemedicine in increasing frequency to treat patients – especially in rural areas – and cut down on readmissions. But is the technology moving faster than the payment models and regulations needed to support the care?

A panel of experts will discuss these issues and more during a Wisconsin Health News briefing Tuesday, Oct. 7 at the Madison Club. Registration and networking will begin at 11:30 a.m. The program starts promptly at noon.

WHEN: Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014, 11:30 a.m.
