Technology in Health Care Grows in Popularity

The shift in the health care industry toward greater efficiency and a higher level of quality of care is resulting in technological innovation. The popularity of the practice of medicine via mobile and wireless devices is on the rise and telemedicine is leading the way. This type of Mobile Health or "mHealth" uses technology to deliver remote clinical care and exchange medical information from one site to another via e-communications and video conferencing for patient consultations. Telemedicine also allows for the transmission of still images between providers (known as "store-and-forward"), and remote monitoring of patient conditions and vital signs, among other things. The challenge for telemedicine is that the innovation is outpacing the regulatory environment in many respects.

In a comprehensive white paper entitled Telemedicine in the Health Care Industry, PLDO health care attorney Jillian N. Jagling and Managing Partner and business attorney Gary R. Pannone describe the opportunities and challenges of telemedicine and explain recent developments in the use of technology in the health care industry.
