4th Annual Missouri Telehealth Summit

November 17, 2017

The Fourth Annual Missouri Telehealth Summit will take place January 31 & February 1, 2018, at the Capitol Plaza Hotel & Convention Center in Jefferson City, Missouri.

As always, this summit brings together providers, payers, and policy-makers. Our keynote speaker is Yulun Wang, the founder and CIO of InTouch Health.  We are highlighting rural hospital telehealth financial barriers and incentives and how telehealth improves access and capacity for care.  We will have a legislative and regulatory panel and an evidence panel.  We are asking for poster submissions to display during the summit.  And we are asking for volunteers to provide a 3-5 minute description of your ‘cool’ telehealth project!

Also, new this year, we will have an exhibit hall so that you can interact with telehealth vendors and a Pre-Summit Workshop, Telehealth 101, on January 31, 2018.
