New Video Blog Addresses Most Pressing Issues Facing Telehealth Industry

Leading telehealth company GlobalMed® debuts Take Note with Joel E. Barthelemy, a weekly video blog offering insightful commentary on industry challenges.

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA, USA, September 12, 2013 / -- Multiple technologies play a significant role in connecting providers and patients in the delivery of quality care. Video in particular is one of the key components in establishing and implementing telehealth services including real-time patient-provider consultations.

Now GlobalMed, the leader in the development of advanced medical devices, software, cloud services and video conferencing technologies, is incorporating video into its corporate blog. The company today announced the debut of “Take Note with Joel E. Barthelemy”, a weekly video blog designed to increase the understanding of some of the most pressing issues and challenges facing the telehealth industry.

Take Note with Joel E. Barthelemy, featuring GlobalMed’s Founder and Managing Director, is a weekly feature on the company’s blog. In the debut video, Barthelemy discusses licensure barriers for providers looking to start telehealth programs in remote areas.

“Because most web users are searching for information in one form or another, blogging has really become a necessity, especially in an industry like telemedicine. The way our audience consumes information is dramatically different today than even five years ago. 100 million Internet users watch online video each day. We’re seeing people hungry for business transparency, immediate value and authentic personalization; and given the nature of what we do at GlobalMed, video just seems right,” says Barthelemy.

Future topics tackled on Take Note with Joel E. Barthelemy include:

• What are the disconnects between urgent care centers and primary care practices; specifically pediatrics?
• How FDA-proposed guidelines for mobile medical applications will impact provider use of smartphones and tablet technology in viewing medical images.
• How audiologists are using telehealth to assess hearing and to adjust hearing aids.
