August 24, 2007 — The Center for Connected Health announced the launch of a new Web site and online Resource Centers for healthcare providers, patients and other healthcare and policy leaders.
The new Web site, www.connected-health.org, is focused on providing a platform for discussions, comments, and resources to help make connected health a reality and establish new models of care for delivering quality patient care.
Using consumer technologies and online resources such as the Internet, cell phones, digital cameras and sensors, the Center for Connected Health is connecting leading medical specialists with patients -- in their homes, offices and around the world -- to better manage and monitor patient health, offer expert second opinions and provide convenient, personalized medical care.
The new website features articles, news, white papers, policy review and guest editorials to provide the inspiration and solutions needed to address healthcare delivery challenges and establish a patient-centered model of care. Information and registration details about the Center's educational events, including its annual Connected Health Symposium, can also be found on the site. The website shares information, data and patient stories from connected health experts, healthcare providers, administrators, employers, payers, policy makers and staffers from the Center for Connected Health on a wide range of healthcare delivery topics.
