Telemedicine: A New Frontier of Opportunity for the Acute Care Provider

Troy Heidesch, DNP, FNP-C

With the current physician shortage and the increased demand for nurse practitioners to care for the aging baby boomer population, healthcare providers are looking for novel ways to provide the care needed without straining limited resources.

Telemedicine initiatives such as telepsychiatry, teleICU, teleneurology, and teleradiology have been shown as viable solutions to this problem. Telemedicine in rural and urban hospital systems has already been shown to improve mortality, decrease length of stay, and decrease time-to-treatment. As such, more than half of all hospital CEOs in rural, suburban, and urban locations report implementing telemedicine solutions in their hospitals.

This session will present current advancements in telemedicine utilization, outcomes, and statutory implications for nurse practitioners. Case studies in telemedicine, including emergency, acute care, and critical care, will be used to demonstrate professional and business opportunities in this new frontier!
