PINEHURST, N.C. – May 8, 2017 – Carolina Business Connection – RelyMD co-founder Dr. Bobby Park will present at LeadingAge North Carolina’s 61st Annual Spring Conference on Wednesday, May 17 at the Pinehurst Resort. Dr. Park will speak on the use of telehealth services within long-term care facilities to decrease hospital admissions and readmissions.
A virtual health service that provides 24/7/365 access to board-certified emergency medicine doctors for both children and adults, RelyMD’s web and mobile-based service allows patients to quickly obtain high-quality medical care – via computer, smartphone, tablet, or phone call – with one of RelyMD’s 100 Raleigh-based physicians.
“In 2015, nearly 45 percent of hospital admissions from long-term care facilities were deemed as potentially avoidable and telemedicine can have a huge impact on decreasing that number,” said Dr. Bobby Park, co-founder of RelyMD. “At RelyMD, we’re able to provide nursing facilities with access to the same doctors their residents would normally see in the emergency department, which in turn can help reduce avoidable hospital readmissions, attract new residents, reduce empty beds and decrease costs.”
Dr. Park will speak from approximately 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. and RelyMD will have an exhibit table at the event throughout the conference. Registration for the conference is available here.
