Today, the rising costs of health care, an aging population and increasingly complex chronic health problems are driving greater focus and attention on population health — the health outcomes of a group of individuals within a population. Indeed, these days more proactive approaches to health care and care delivery are identifying the social determinants of health for various populations such as environmental conditions, economic status, and access to resources and support.

Collaboration across the healthcare team has always been important. What’s different today? You can collaborate over video anywhere anytime to education, delivery care or get things done!

Patients with chronic disease may find themselves in the hospital on Monday, released to go home a few days later, just to find themselves back in the Emergency room the following Monday creating an expensive cycle of declining health. Collaborative video education is breaking this cycle helping healthcare teams and patients better manage disease through community and home based education.

Unfortunately, it is not unusual. Patients are sent home with instructions to continue improving their health, but few manage to do everything they need to do for a variety of reasons.
