Gorman’s presentation, entitled, Is now the time for Telemedicine in Long Term Care?, will take place on Friday, May 4, 2018. Gorman will address the audience in an engaging discussion about how telemedicine has been fast-growing since its inception more than 20 years ago, and becoming more widely adopted of late. She will highlight telemedicine’s applications across a variety of care models. Her session will cover offerings for long-term care as well as the facility features and staff qualities that lead to success. Dr. Gorman will also discuss financial considerations involved in making a commitment to deploying telemedicine services on the part of the facility and its respective staff.
More than 500 LeadingAge Wisconsin
participants are expected to attend the conference, consisting primarily of board members, chief executive officers, executive directors, administrators, directors of nursing, activity and therapy directors, directors of finance, directors of social services, senior housing managers, assisted living providers, senior housing directors, adult day care professionals, chaplains, human resource directors, and other managers and supervisory personnel representing long-term care, assisted living, senior housing, and adult day care organizations. Typically, about 80 percent of the attendees are from not-for-profit organizations.
The theme for this year’s LeadingAge’s conference is Life on Purpose. The conference will explore the many opportunities care professionals are afforded to promote the concept of Life on Purpose in a changing and challenging world. These opportunities, strategies and best practices will impact the people, the ideas, the places and the programs served by LeadingAge’s members but, perhaps more importantly, they will emphasize and highlight why members do what they do. This LeadingAge Wisconsin conference will feature a variety of educational sessions, each of which will explore opportunities to pursue a Life on Purpose in a world of expanding possibilities for aging.
“I am honored to present at this prominent annual conference in the company of so many experienced professionals engaged in and committed to serving the long-term care space. I can speak firsthand to the role telemedicine is increasingly playing the skilled nursing facility and long-term health space, based on my position with TripleCare,” explained Dr. Gorman.
“TripleCare has witnessed enormous growth lately, resulting from an industry-wide broader adoption of telemedicine, particularly over the past few years. In fact, in the past year alone, the company’s annualized revenue grew 36 percent, and it launched services in five additional states. I am excited to present details and data we have gathered from our own direct experience in helping facilities improve the care they deliver, reduce hospital readmissions and operate more cost-effectively as the acceptance of telemedicine continues to thrive,” Gorman concluded.
