Important Considerations for Picking a Telehealth Partner

practitioner-cart-lg-1At this point the growth of technology-enabled healthcare has become almost inevitable. With support from the largest industry associations including the American Medical Association, it is safe to say, telemedicine and telehealth are turning a corner in their adoption curve.

So now that the technology acceptance phase has reached critical mass, the next question that healthcare organizations may want to ask is, “Whom should we partner with for our telemedicine deployments?”

When it comes to technology, most who have been through any number of project lifecycles knows that it is rare that a project goes smooth from end to end. Problems can come about in the product selection, project management, training or even the post sales service.

In order to avoid problems throughout the project process, choosing the right partner is a critical consideration. With healthcare’s future leaning heavily on the integration and use of video collaboration, what should healthcare providers be looking for in a partner? We know how important partnership is, in fact, our friends at Polycom provide some interesting insights on the topic that we would love to share with our readers. Check out this article found on the Polycom “View” – The Future of Healthcare is about Collaboration.
