WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – (March 8, 2016) – RelyMD co-founder Dr. Bobby Park will present at the North Carolina Association on Aging’s (NCAOA) State Aging Conference Friday, March 17 at the Winston-Salem Marriott. Dr. Park will speak on the use of telehealth services within skilled nursing facilities to decrease hospitalizations.
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.
“Up to nearly 70 percent of hospitalizations among skilled nursing facilities are 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 focused on partnering with nursing facilities to reduce avoidable hospital readmissions, attract new residents, reduce empty beds and save on reimbursements.”
Dr. Park will speak from approximately 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. Tickets to the event are $170 for NCAOA members and $195 for non-members. Event registration is available here.
