A dull title, but the January edition of our newsletter is actually full of awesome. This month we have:
- The official debut of the SecureVideo Support Center, a 24/7 resource to help you get started, answer your questions, and troubleshoot any issues if need be. (If you find it more expedient to ask, no worries: our Support Team remains available by phone or e-mail during our live support hours.)
- Encouraging articles on telemedicine, such as the Telehealth Modernization Act (2013) sponsored by House Representatives Doris O. Matsui (D-CA) and Bill Johnson (R-OH), and the effectiveness of using telehealth to help veterans lead healthier lives.
- Resources for your online practice: an overview of state telehealth laws and reimbursement practices, case studies, and a telehealth wiki.
- A shout-out to a piece of telemedicine history unearthed by Excalibur Healthcare: a drawing from 1925 predicting how advances in technology would one day allow doctors to tend to patients remotely. (The artist might have been vindicated to see that doctors ARE doing something similar now with Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras, several models of which are supported by SecureVideo.)
