Convergence of Telemedicine and mHealth — Benefits & Challenges

We are very excited to share that Ron Poropatich, MD will be delivering the Keynote Presentation on April 4th at the gpTRAC Regional Telehealth Forum.  He will continue to focus on one of our main topics for this year’s event —  the coming together of telemedicine and mHealth.  It will be interesting to hear his perspective!

Dr. Poropatich has extensive experience with the use of telemedicine in the military.  He has recently retired from the US Army after serving more than 30 years as a Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine physician.  His last assignment was at the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) at Fort Detrick, MD, serving as the Deputy Director of the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC).  He currently serves as the Executive Director for the Center for Military Medicine Research, Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.  He also serves as an Associate Editor for the Telemedicine and e-Health Journal.

Joseph C. Kvedar, MD is the founder and director of the Center for Connected Health at Partners HealthCare.  AND, we are very excited to share that he will be joining us at the gpTRAC Regional Telehealth Forum as the Keynote Speaker on April 3rd.

Dr. Kvedar has long been involved in leading the development of telehealth modalities, stretching the idea of what telehealth should be, and defining what it will look like in the years to come.  Check out Dr. Kvedar’s cHealth Blog to get an idea of some of what he might be sharing at the Forum in Minneapolis.
