The mission of the California Telehealth Network (CTN) is to “promote advanced information technologies and services to improve access to high quality healthcare focusing on medically underserved and rural Californians.”

To learn more about how CTN is working to expand the adoption of telehealth, we sat down with Eric Brown, President and CEO. Eric brings a business perspective and balance to the conversation on the cost savings that telehealth can deliver and a view of the future where patients will ultimately drive the telemedicine market.

In our first video podcast, recorded using Polycom’s RealPresence Media Suite, we discussed several interesting topics, including:

  • A day-in-the-life of a patient with diabetes moving from in-person to virtual consultation
  • State level changes that could potentially facilitate adoption rates for telehealth programs
  • The three big telehealth trends for 2016
