RIDGELAND, Miss., Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While still in its infancy around much of the U.S., using telecommunications technology to transform medical care in Mississippi holds tremendous promise in helping save lives and improving survival rates for thousands of at-risk residents battling chronic health problems.
That was the conclusion of some of the nation's leading health care experts who gathered in Jackson recently to help over 125 representatives from Mississippi hospitals, doctors and insurance companies learn more about how to develop and implement successful telehealth programs.
