While onsite at this year’s mHealth Summit in D.C. earlier this month, I had the opportunity to chat with Gigi Sorenson, director of Clinical Specialty Programs at Flagstaff Medical Center, who is currently leading the development and implementation of FMC’s Telemedicine Program. Supported by a collaboration of providers and industry innovators who are utilizing mobile technology and telehealth to achieve a new degree of care coordination and connected health, the program includes the development of Care Beyond Walls and Wires and the flagship TeleStroke partnership with Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Identified as one of the medical center’s top three initiatives in 2012, Gigi was excited to share with me the details of the program, including sending home their very first patient and family enrolled in the program with their connected devices that very day, and shed light on some of the new mhealth innovations that will be coming down the pike at the organization in the upcoming months and years.
