NBMLHD Telehealth: Enabling Innovative Models of Care
This workshop will introduce the many initiatives at the NBMLHD Telehealth and Technology Centre (TTC), including family-based obesity, home haemodialysis, directly observed therapy, orthopaedics outpatients, etc. We will introduce novel technologies that is currently available as well as emerging technologies, including patient monitoring, data analytics, mixed reality, etc., that can be used to develop future models of care.
The workshop also invites participants to contribute in an interactive brainstorming session to explore how Telehealth and other emerging digital technologies, can be leveraged in the NBMLHD hospital redevelopment. We will discuss all aspects of Telehealth initiatives – from idea generation, concept development, and to project implementation – taking into account of governance, ethics, privacy, security, ICT engagement, research opportunities, funding models etc.
