NEWARK, N.J., May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its continuing business transformation, Panasonic Corporation of North America is taking steps to demonstrate the kinds of solutions it can bring to the healthcare sector.
As a member of the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), Panasonic is exhibiting at the upcoming ATA Conference taking place May 17-20 in Baltimore. The annual conference is the premier healthcare product showcase for telemedicine, telehealth and mobile health technologies, bringing together more than 6,000 healthcare professionals and leading telemedicine programs.
Changes in care delivery, driven by advances in technology, are shifting industry focus towards wellness, prevention, and patient-centric care. Panasonic is responding to the evolution of traditional models by mapping its technological expertise to products and services aimed at reducing preventable hospital readmissions and unnecessary office visits, delivering better care coordination among providers and empowering individuals with easier access to personal health information.
Exhibiting in booth #1720, Panasonic's presence will showcase a customized tablet-based application developed to demonstrate how its innovative technologies can help revolutionize the delivery of services within the healthcare industry.
"The ATA Conference is a great opportunity for Panasonic to highlight its portfolio of products, services and unparalleled technology and show how these assets enable us to produce customized solutions that improve the quality of patient care, reduce costs, and streamline efficiencies throughout the healthcare continuum," said Bob Dobbins, Vice President, New Business Development at Panasonic Corporation of North America. "Connectivity, device integration and interoperability are critically important. Panasonic intends to showcase a new generation of networked health information technologies designed to enable providers to deliver cost-effective healthcare services in a variety of settings across the continuum of care."
In June, Panasonic will sponsor the Innovation HealthJam, a three-day virtual event involving key opinion makers in the healthcare ecosystem brainstorming ideas to transform the industry. Scheduled for June 17-19, the event is free and is open to healthcare providers, health technology companies, universities, government agencies, patient advocates, trade associations and passionate stakeholders.
